“We have one planet and we must all do our best to protect it. I have fished the waters of South Florida for over 50 years and it has gone from pristine to polluted. We have pumped everything from plastic to poison to poop into our waterways. This is sickening, and it has to stop and be cleaned up now!”

– Bang Energy CEO Jack Owoc

WESTON, Fla., Nov. 06, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — It’s no secret that plastic containers are a major environmental concern. According to The Guardian, a million plastic beverage bottles were purchased every minute around the world in 2017, and the vast majority of them (about 80%) wind up in landfills — typically after just a single use. The Coca-Cola Company is the biggest plastic polluter on the planet and, according to BBC News, pumps 200,000 plastic bottles per minute into our environment, with no end in sight and no plan to stop this insanity. Only YOU can stop this atrocity by not purchasing plastic bottles. It’s really that simple!

Each plastic bottle takes up to 1,000 years to decompose and, in the process, leaks harmful chemicals into the environment, including the world’s oceans. Researchers “conservatively estimate 14 million metric tons of microplastics reside on the ocean floor.” This is 25 times greater than what was previously believed and, obviously, has a profound impact on ocean life. In fact, it’s estimated that approximately 5 to 13 metric tons of plastic seeps into ocean waters every year, where it’s ingested by sea birds, fish and other organisms. Even humans are not immune. Researchers at Ghent University in Belgium recently determined that seafood eaters also consume up to 11,000 tiny pieces of plastic every year.

Sadly, those in the beverage industry have been among the worst environmental offenders. Just last year, Break Free From Plastic named Coca-Cola the top global polluter for the second year in a row. This global movement further reports that, during cleanup efforts in 37 countries across four continents, 11,732 Coca Cola-branded plastics were found — more than the next three top global polluters combined.

And even companies that falsely claim they and the products they produce are environmentally conscious may be some of the biggest polluters on the planet! For example, the multinational food packaging company Tetra Pak, which makes juice boxes — the kind with the tiny plastic straw…
