Coca-Cola and plastic – level 2

22-02-2022 07:00

Coca-Cola is a company that makes soft drinks, and it is also the world’s worst plastic polluter.

Many people and companies criticized Coca-Cola that it did nothing to limit its plastic. The company officially said that it knew about the problem with plastic on streets, beaches, and in the oceans.

It finally promised to do something with it. Coca-Cola said that it would be possible to recycle all its packaging by 2030. Also, 25% of the packaging will be reusable. It means that people will be able to use something more than once.

Not everyone was happy about the news. Some people said that reducing trash was more important than recycling.

Difficult words: polluter (a person or company which puts bad things in the water, air, and so on), limit (to use less), recycle (to use things and materials to make new things).

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