Stop Coca-Cola trashing Australia

Video | 7 May, 2013

We've made a new Coke ad -- with a twist! It exposes how this drinks giant is willing to let plastic pollution trash our oceans and kill our marine life: http://bit.ly/cokead-YT

In March, Coca-Cola won its court case to stop a popular and proven 10 cent recycling refund scheme in the Northern Territory -- a program that has already doubled recycling rates in the territory, and operated successfully in South Australia for over 30 years saving tens of millions of plastic containers from ending up in our beaches and oceans.

This loose rubbish is estimated to affect up to 65% of Australian seabirds. Some mistake the plastic for food. When they swallow too much, their tiny stomachs become so full they're unable to ingest any food -- literally starving to death on a full stomach.
