Plastic beverage container waste is a growing problem throughout the world. In the United States, plastic beverage container recycling rates have plummeted since 1994 while waste has more than doubled. Coca-Cola has created a plastic bottle waste crisis for the environment, recycling and taxpayers.

Join the tens of thousands of consumers, activists and students who are calling on Coke to Do the Real Thing! Demand that Coke work to increase recycling (collection) rate of used soda bottles by supporting container deposits, and to use significant quantities of recycled plastic in their bottles as new supplies become available - as they promised in 1990.
