It might be the world’s biggest drinks company, but that didn’t deter this incredibly inspiring group of Sydney school girls.

They’ve managed to have all Coca-Cola products banned from Canterbury Girls High School. Why? Because of the company’s outrageous efforts to block the popular and proven Cash for Containers scheme from being rolled out across Australia.

Watch this story from ABC News:
