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 beaches and on the ocean’s surface.
Coca-Cola produces over 110 billion single-use plastic bottles a year, the equivalent of over 3,400 bottles per second. As one of the world’s biggest brands, Coke has the power to make a real change to the health of our oceans.
The CEO of Coca-Cola James Quincey is being petitioned by over 250,000 members of the public to do just that, and we at eWater Systems would like to add our voice to that call. Our oceans are too valuable and vulnerable to continue without a real change in this area.
