Partnership helps Coke push ahead with plant-based PETPosted on September 29, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
People need to know that this is partially a greenwashing sham. A plastic bottle made from plants is still a plastic bottle, with a greenwashed label. The Plant bottle does nothing at all to address the huge pollution Cokes plastic bottles make. They litter everywhere. The bottles sink in water so how many countless bottles are polluting the bottom of our lakes and oceans? Coke continually ignores this problem they are making. Not only do they ignore it they spend a lot of money on legal and false advertising campaings to prevent the introduction of a container deposit scheme that would stop over 80% of this problem in just a few months and cost Coke next to nothing. The most recent case of this is going on in Australia at the moment where a national container law is up for discussion.
