  • Coca-Cola keeping up its position as one of the biggest polluters on the planet. Go Coke go (as in: be gone).

  • Add another feather in their cap for ‘most polluting brand’. Well done Coca Cola. How did you think this was a good idea?

  • What a massive investment on more plastic waste. How do such ideas get green lighted? I wonder…
    Very in tune with the zeitgeist, I would say, and look, I love Star Wars (despite the new management).

  • i guess the plastic bottles weren’t wasteful enough they had to throw in a whole battery and a circuit board
