the good people at the Coca-Cola Company are dedicating themselves to addressing our global plastic waste problem. If we can recover and recycle plastic, we can not only keep it from becoming trash, but we can use that plastic again and again — it’s an amazing material. What’s more, when we use recycled material, we also reduce our carbon footprint. What’s not to love?
He then goes into great depth regarding the company’s aspirations to make bottles for its drinks out of mostly recycled materials, as well as its dedication to environmental cleanup. Molly Taft, the Gizmodo reporter, slammed “Shill Nye the Plastic Guy” for teaming with Coca-Cola, which has been labelled one of the most polluting brands in the world by multiple different audits.
