COCA COLA - CAN WE GO BACK TO GLASS?
Dear MD/CEO of COCA COLA - SOUTH AFRICA/AFRICA
Your plastic beverage bottles are ending up in landfills and more especially our oceans where numerous life forms are being affected. In the recent floodings in Durban, one can easily see the damage that your plastic bottles are creating.
I would like to ask you to please urgently consider
1. Going back to glass only bottles
2. Implementing the use of 'deposit linked higher quality bottles' like in the case of the UK and the European entities :
Why is this important?
We only have ONE earth and Coca Cola is presently at the forefront of continually bringing damage to our environment, both land and sea.
I am 12 years old now and would love to be part of a future that shows that the generation that came before us made responsible and caring decisions for all of humanity and this beautiful earth that was loaned to us.
History will reflect the good and the bad - Coco Cola you have the ability now to make the right decisions!
