CONTROVERSIAL COKE ADVERT

CAUSES STIR IN AUSTRALIA

POSTED BY 

Without a doubt, Coca-Cola is one of the worst companies on the planet. From its murderous human rights violations stamping out unions in Latin America (especially at Colombian bottling plants) to its marketing to youngsters to its environmental record (especially concerning water), it is hands down a terrible corporation getting away with incredible harm on this planet.

So it’s refreshing indeed to see Killer Coke get its comeuppance in this amazing Australian Greenpeace TV advert about Coke and plastic pollution. While it’s not surprising that Coke is blocking a new recycling scheme in Australia it is surprising that the advert had to be removed because Aussies found it “too disturbing” — come on mate, that seems like a bit of greenwashing counterspin to me. The likely culprit? CokeTake action here.
