Greta S started this petition to Coca-Cola

Did you know that Coca Cola uses about 3 million tons of plastic a year? That is the same weight as 30,000 Blue Whales!  plastic affects the environment because they break down into microplastics and the microplastics get into the ocean, from sewers and streams. Animals end up getting confused and thinking the plastic is food. That is decimating sea life populations. Also, it affects you because when we end up eating seafood, we end up eating the microplastics; so it ends up in our body and system. 

Coca Cola can reduce their plastic by making their packaging out of cardboard. Also, they can make their bottles out of glass, or use cans. According to BBC, producing glass bottles is only 0.01 cent more than producing PET plastic. Also, glass is reusable. Coca Cola's said "We work hard to maximize the energy efficiency and minimize the impact of our manufacturing and distribution processes, and actively participate in policy discussions that have the potential to impact these areas. We support public policies that deal fairly with water quality, packaging, agriculture and ingredients, as well as other environmental policies and/or actions that have the potential to impact our business." It's time for Coca Cola to follow through with what they promised. 

So, in conclusion by signing this petition to make Coca Cola switch from plastic packaging, you can save the sealife, the environment, and your health. All of these benefits at practically no extra cost of Coca Cola.
Its time for a change, and you can make it happen by signing today
