#AmazôniaNossoÉden: Recursos para se manifestar no Dia da Amazônia
Coca Cola is the world’s top plastic polluter, according to a new report from the global Break Free From Plastic coalition.
Coca-Cola’s own data shows that they produce 3 million tonnes of plastic packaging a year – the equivalent of 108 billion single-use bottles. That’s 200,000 bottles a minute.
Renew Our World have been running the Rubbish Campaign since May 2019. We’re targeting Coca-Cola, Nestle, PepsiCo and Unilever, calling on them to stop the rubbish problem their plastic products create. Without waste collection, the build-up or burning of plastic waste leads to disease and death, as well as contributing to climate change.
We know when we take action, change can happen. Thanks to your campaigning and prayers, Unilever have committed to halve their use of virgin plastics by 2025 and collect as much or more plastic than they sell. This is a big step towards two of our #RubbishCampaign asks! With this Coca-Cola action, we can keep pushing for even more positive action from them and others.
We want to keep the pressure up on all the companies, but we particularly want to make sure that Coca-Cola gets this message loud and clear. You can help be creating a message in a Coke bottle! Here is how:
Prepare your bottle
You can use either a used plastic bottle or a ‘paper bottle’:
The used bottle (for biggest impact):
The ‘Paper bottle’:
Write a message
Send via social media and/or mail:
To maximise the impact on Coca-Cola, we’re inviting you to send your message via social media and/or physical mail. If you can do both – great! If you can only do one, that’s fine too.
