Is Coca-Cola still the biggest plastic polluter or have they started to clean their act as claimed?

Coca Cola Single Use Plastic Bottles | Drawing United

Is Coca-Cola still the biggest plastic polluter?’ is not even a question in my mind but rather a given – Coca-Cola is polluter.

I kept that thought with me for a long time until recently and yes I started to believe things could get better on the single-use plastic bottle especially.

As it turned out and under increasing pressure, Coca-Cola eventually came forward by pledging a plastic reduction in their manufacturing techniques.

Myself and many of us hoped that this would mean that they’ve started to clean their act as claimed right? I am afraid but the report is out and Coca-Cola, PepsiCo and Nestlé top the list for the third year in a row.

Ugh.

The report demands corporate responsibility for plastic pollution, Break Free From Plastic (BFFP) 

The #breakfreefromplastic Movement is a global movement that envisions a future free from plastic pollution.

Since its launch in 2016, more than 11,000 organisations and individual supporters from across the world have joined the movement to demand massive reductions in single-use plastics and to push for lasting solutions to the plastic pollution crisis.

Same old suspects, same old guilty ones…

“The title of Top Global Polluters describes the parent companies whose brands were recorded polluting the most places around the world with the greatest amount of plastic waste,”

“Our 2020 Top Global Polluters remain remarkably consistent with our previous brand audit reports, demonstrating that the same corporations are continuing to pollute the most places with the most single-use plastic.”

A report’s executive summary noted.

Over 5,000 brands were cataloged this year, but Coca-Cola quickly emerged as the world’s number one plastic polluter.

Did you know that a ‘new’ species of animal or plant is discovered in the Amazon every three days?


Its beverage bottles were found most frequently, discarded on beaches, rivers, parks and other litter sites in 51 of the 55 nations surveyed, The Guardian reported.

The brand was worse than PepsiCo and Nestlé, the next two top offenders, combined

Help us raising awareness by sharing this post

By Pierrick Senelaer

Since 2015, I have had the chance to have my own art studio in Stoke Newington (London). Besides, I am thinking adding a sofa bed in it.

Environmental issues such as Climate Change or Plastic Pollution, are something I feel concerned about. Therefore, I’ve launched DRAWING UNITED.

Drawing United is a collective of artists, started off by Pierrick Senelaer, who cares for our environment and planet and who want to use their art and creativity to raise awareness and/or support a good cause.
