This weekend - sees the launch of the new phase of Greenpeace's plastic campaign, To try and get Coca Cola to stop using single use bottles.  So please keep some time free on saturday or Sunday that weekend, as we will be having an action day in Eastbourne, and we need as many people to join us as possible.

 

Campaign background

In the UK alone we use 35 million plastic bottles every day, but nearly half of these are not recycled.

We all love beaches, but hate it when we see plastic bottles and bottle tops ruining the view. Yet a truckload of plastic bottles, bottle tops and other plastic waste which isn’t being reused or recycled, is entering our ocean every single minute, which otherwise could have been reused or recycled. 

Plastic can take centuries to break down and with plastic production set to double in the next 20 years and quadruple to 318 million tonnes by 2050, we need to curb the flow of plastics into our oceans and take drastic action to end the era of throwaway plastic, right now!

To tackle the problem we need the soft drinks industry to start taking serious action and fast.
