A plastic Coke bottle on the beach

Sylvia,

Coca-Cola was just named the world’s worst plastic polluter for the fifth year in a row!

They just won’t fix their problem. So we’re going to take the fight to them.

If enough people reading this email contribute the cost of a single Coke or more, we can buy up enough shares in Coca-Cola and other major plastic polluters to have our say directly at their annual general meetings – and even push for resolutions to their boards forcing them to clean up their act.

Together we’ve already bought shares in Facebook, Google, Monsanto, and more. And our program works – so well, in fact, that after we helped force Apple to adopt its first human rights policy, US regulators started changing rules to try to shut down this kind of work!

But we won’t let that stop us. It’s time for Coke and other plastic polluters to see what we’re made of. Let’s clean up our oceans – chip in now... and your donation will be used to generate matching donations, doubling your impact:

Plastic pollution is so out of hand that it’s hard to pick the most horrifying statistic. More plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. A truckload worth of plastic dumped in the ocean every minute. And now a new study says whales are eating up to 10 million pieces of microplastic every day.

Maybe there’s no better way to put it than this: in the time it takes to read this email, Coca-Cola will on its own produce 200,000 more plastic bottles. Sylvia, they simply don’t get it.

That’s why this issue is perfect for our shareholder program. And even though the US stock authority is rigging the rules to favour the richest shareholders, adding time-consuming and arduous procedures for regular folks like us – the good news is, it means our strategy is working.

And there's a simple solution: bring our community together to buy stocks in some of the biggest corporations to keep achieving real-world change. We started with Apple, and bought Google and Facebook stock too. Now it's time for plastic pollution champions like Coca-Cola to see what we can do. Can you help finally hold these corporate giants to account for its planet-destroying practices? (Remember, your donation will be used to get matching donations!)

Thanks for all that you do,
