Revealed: the most rubbish companies
Our world has a rubbish problem, and it’s hitting people living in poverty the hardest. Companies sell billions of single-use plastic products in countries where waste isn’t collected. They know full well that communities will have no choice but to live among this rubbish or burn it – leading to health problems and climate change.
We are also seeing that Covid19 is hitting the poorest communities that already face big health and environmental challenges. Our new report, The Burning Question, reveals how the burning of plastic waste is leading to respiratory diseases as well as climate change.
In response to this, over 40,000 of us have joined Renew Our World’s Rubbish Campaign and called on multinational companies to improve this rubbish situation by taking responsibility for the plastic waste mountains their products are creating.
Some of the companies have begun to move in the right direction, though there is still a long way to go. However, two companies, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, are hardly off the starting line when it comes to taking responsibility for their plastic pollution. You can see a League Table of how the companies are performing here.
This isn’t good enough. Act now to send Coca-Cola and PepsiCo a message telling them to get a move on.
If other companies can take action, why shouldn’t they?
Please fill in your details in order to send an email to Coca-Cola and PepsiCo telling them to take action to reduce their plastic waste.
