Coca-Cola refuses to give up single-use plastic

Jan 22, 2020 17:53 IST

American multinational corporation and one of the world's biggest producers of plastic waste, Coca-Cola has refused to give up single-use plastic. The firm's head of sustainability Bea Perez told BBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos, that customers still want plastic bottles because they are light weight and they reseal easily. Scrapping plastic bottles would "would alienate customers and hit sales". The statement has sparked fury among environmental campaigners, who accused the company of not taking responsibility for their plastic waste.
