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

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.

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