Coca-Cola, under pressure from environmentalists over its packaging policies, has pledged to use reusable containers for at least 25% of its beverages by 2030. The AFP news agency quotes the soda giant as saying the policy would be implemented globally through the glass and plastic bottles it sells to consumers and through the containers used at soda fountains and dispensers. The advocacy group As You Sow, which has drafted a shareholder proposal urging greater use of refillable bottles, praised the announcement. But the coalition #Breakfreefromplastics, which has rated the company the world’s top plastic polluter because of its historic use of single-use plastic containers, offered only measured praise, saying “The company’s string of broken promises in the past … compels us to welcome this announcement with some skepticism”.
