Glasgow-based event venue joins Coke recycling schemePosted on March 15, 2012 by DrRossH in Plastic Waste News
These recycle zones are good and public education is also good. But all the recycle zones represent only a fraction of the bottle consumption areas. Coke getting big headlines about doing something good is a bit of spin really. They could be doing so much more to benefit their image and our environment.
Consider this, if a bottle deposit scheme was in place and Coke collected all the bottles from these recycle centers, then Coke would redeem then for the deposit back. This would be another source of income for Coke. Making money off their own bottles! This is what happens in South Australia, where Coke makes several millions of dollars a year off their own bottles.
Yet they still fight these container deposit schemes every chance they get.
