Bye Bye Coke.   This company has an appalling record on the environment with their cans and bottles polluting every where, causing ocean plastic problems and their refusal to support a Cash for Container scheme that would fix the problem very efficiently at no cost.  Plus the contents of the bottle with the very high sugar content is having dire health effects on people and they refuse to acknowledge that too. Video available.

NSW to get Container Depost Scheme

The Baird Government in NSW has just announced they will introduce cash for containers recycling in NSW! Today is a great day for the environment.   Now every littered bottle will be worth 10 cents.  Bottle litter will vanish in a few months.  recycling will go from 20% to over 80%.  (Just yesterday Port Melbourne 3207BP picked dup 116 bottles in an hour).What a fantastic improvement this will be for all.

Now We need to convince our new Vic government that this is essential here too to clean up our highly littered beaches, parks and road ways.
