Coke: The World’s Worst Polluter?

What is Coca-Cola’s environmental impact? The first 1000 people who click the link will get 2 free months of Skillshare Premium: https://skl.sh/ourchangingclimate0820

In this Our Changing Climate environmental video essay, I look at Coca-Cola’s plastic pollution and water use and waste. Coca-Cola (Coke) has now become synonymous with plastic pollution and one audit of ocean trash claims Coke is the most polluting brand in terms of ocean plastic. In part, this is due to Coca-Cola’s switch to plastic bottles in this U.S. in the middle of the 20th century. Plastic is much cheaper to produce but the costs are offloaded onto the oceans and environment. Coca-Cola (Coke) also heavily drains local watersheds and aquifers and in countless locations has led to crop loss and drought. Essentially, wherever Coke goes there’s bound to be plastic pollution and water problems.
