Our world has a rubbish problem, and it’s hitting people living in poverty the hardest. Companies sell billions of single-use plastic products in countries where waste isn’t collected. They know full well that communities will have no choice but to live among this rubbish or burn it – leading to health problems and climate change.
Over 50,000 of us have joined Renew Our World’s Rubbish Campaign last year and called on multinational companies to improve this rubbish situation by taking responsibility for the plastic waste mountains their products are creating.
Some of the companies have begun to move in the right direction, though there is still a long way to go. However, two companies, Coca-Cola and PepsiCo, are hardly off the starting line when it comes to taking responsibility for their plastic pollution.
