Coca-Cola and plastic – level 1

22-02-2022 07:00

Coca-Cola is an American company. It makes soft drinks. It makes more than 500 different drinks. Most drinks come in plastic. Cans are from aluminum. People throw bottles and cans away. Many end up on streets, beaches, and in the ocean.

Coca-Cola hurts the natural world a lot. The company officially says that it is true. It is time to change it now. The company will recycle all its plastic by 2030.

Many people and companies are happy. Some say that it is not enough. It is more important to reduce plastic and not recycle it.

Difficult words: soft drink (a non-alcoholic drink such as lemonade or fruit juice), recycle (to use materials and old things for making new things), reduce (to make something smaller).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
