Keep Australia Beautiful: Drop your dirty Coke habit! Stop lobbying against recycling #dobinalitterbug

Keep Australia Beautiful is lobbying governments to oppose a bottle and can recycling scheme - whilst accepting cash from Coke. 

The national container deposit program could divert more than 740,000 tonnes from landfill, lead to a 12 to 15 per cent drop in litter, and raise $90 million in government revenue, according to a 2012 Senate inquire - its a winner all round.

So why is Keep Australia Beautiful meeting MPs and lobbying against the scheme? It's simple - they're being funded by Coke.

Tell Peter Mclean, Chief Executive of Keep Australia Beautiful, to stop blocking common sense recycling programs.

 

To:
Peter Mclean, Chief Executive, Keep Australia Beautiful
Clean up your relationship with Coke and stop lobbying against cash for cans recycling

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      It's been working here in SA for years. Our country roads are cleaner than interstate as we don't have all the cans & bottles lying around!

      It is simply illogical not to do this if only for the environmental issues let alone the other benefits

      Governments should not be able to oppose something that benefits communities all around, with increased revenue and a cleaner environment! Two very important things. Bribes are illegal, are they not?

      Kids that litter would save up their cans instead of throwing them on the floor

      Keep Australia Beautiful campaign - one day a year to clean up and the other 364 to trash the place. How cynical can you get?
