a mock drinks label that reads "don't let Coke choke our oceans'


Our oceans can't stomach any more plastic. 

Studies show that up to 90% of seabirds now have plastic in their stomachs. We need to act urgently to stop plastic getting into our oceans. And we’re calling on Coca-Cola - the world’s biggest soft drinks company - to lead the way. 

New figures show Coke produces over 110 billion single-use plastic bottles a year. As one of the world’s biggest brands, Coke has the power to change how its industry operates.

We need Coke to phase out single-use plastic bottles and invest in new alternatives. Sign the petition and tell Coca-Cola's global CEO: our oceans can’t stomach any more plastic.


So what's the issue?

Ocean plastic pollution is a global problem and one of the greatest threats that our oceans face. Up to 12 million metric tons of plastic enter our oceans every year – that is the equivalent of a garbage truck’s worth every minute.

Research shows that plastic bottles are one of the most commonly found items on beach cleans and on the ocean’s surface. 

We surveyed the top six global soft drinks brands: Coca-Cola, PepsiCo, Suntory, Danone, Dr. Pepper Snapple, and Nestlé. All companies except for Coca-Cola disclosed the size of their plastic footprint. However, we were able to look at Coke’s sustainability reports and we estimate that in 2016 the company produced over 110 billion single-use plastic bottles. That is the equivalent of over 3,400 bottles per second!

It can't be left up to consumers to solve the problem of plastic pollution. We can't simply recycle our way out of this mess. Companies need to take responsibility and tackle the problem where it starts – their own production.

Why Coca-Cola?

As the world’s biggest soft drinks company, Coca-Cola bears a particular responsibility for the crisis our oceans are facing. And it has the means and influence across the sector to help end this flow of plastic pollution. Despite claiming to care about ocean plastics, Coca-Cola is hiding the scale of its plastic footprint and failing to take meaningful action to stop its products from polluting our seas. That's why we're calling out the global CEO and demanding Coca-Cola to take immediate action.

Our oceans are in trouble. A garbage-truck load of plastic waste enters our oceans every minute – choking and entangling marine life, littering our coastlines and beaches and even ending up on our plates.

It's Time To Act - What Can We Do?

Individual action simply won’t cut it when corporations continue to carelessly produce tonnes of single-use plastic every day. That's why we need as many people as possible to join this urgent campaign today so we can take this fight to the top.

We know we can win this because we’ve done it before. Together, we won against Coca-Cola and the beverage industry after they tried to block a drink container deposit scheme in NSW in 2016.

Together, we celebrated as Woolworths, Coles and Harris Farm agreed to ban the bag, along with 3 more states - Qld, WA and Vic committing to phase out single-use plastic bags.  



People all across the world are taking action to end the deadly cycle of ocean plastics. This is a fight we must win. Add your name today and stop Coca-Cola from trashing our oceans.
