Coke produces over 110 billion single-use plastic bottles a year. Billions end up in rivers, on beaches and ultimately in our oceans. Yet right now Coca-Cola has no commitment to reduce the number of single-use plastic bottles it is selling – and globally is actually increasing their use of throwaway plastic bottles.
Studies have shown up to 90% of seabirds now have plastic in their stomachs.
We’re calling on Coca Cola - the world’s biggest soft drinks company to lead the way in changing how its industry works. India being one of their biggest markets, we Indians need them to phase out single-use plastic bottles and invest in new and innovative alternatives.
This issue is bigger than just individual littering. For many companies like Coca-Cola, throwaway plastic packaging is a business model.
