Call for reusable bottles
oceana

Plastic pollution is literally killing our oceans. The equivalent of two garbage trucks worth of plastic are dumped into our oceans every minute and up to 34 billion plastic bottles become marine pollution every year. The results are devastating for ocean ecosystems and animals like sea turtles, birds, and whales. 


We know that recycling is not working for our oceans. Only 9% of all plastic waster ever produced has been recycled. Refillables can help solve the plastics pollution crisis facing our oceans. Refillable bottles don't pollute our seas. Did you know that most bottles used to be refillables, until companies replaced them with single-use plastic bottles a few decades ago? That people still buy refillables around the world and really like them? And that well-managed refillables are better for the climate as well?


IT'S TIME TO REFILL AGAIN


In the wake of campaigning by Oceana and its allies, the Coca-Cola Company has made a commitment to increase the share of their products sold in refillable and reusable containers to 25% of everything it sells by volume by 2030. In addition, PepsiCo recently committed to making its own reusable goal by the end of this year.


TELL SOFT DRINK COMPANIES: HELP THE OCEANS AND GIVE US REFILLABLE BOTTLES


Oceana is asking supporters to protect our oceans by calling on major beverage companies and bottlers to expand refillable systems in existing markets and create new major markets for refillables. To sign the petition, click here. Visit #RefillAgain’s website here.
