Climate warning

PepsiCo sued by New York state for plastic pollution.

According to the lawsuit, PepsiCo is the single largest identifiable contributor to the problem. PepsiCo's spokesperson has told the BBC that it has been "transparent in its journey to reduce use of plastic".
Also Last week Coca-Cola, Danone and Nestle were accused of making misleading claims about their plastic bottles.

    PepsiCo were by far the largest named polluters, as 17% of plastic waste in the Buffalo River was found with their brand names on it. We just came off a Zoom about this lawsuit & 222 people worldwide took part. How can PepsiCo have a 73% green rating here, when they're NOT helping to clean up the mess they made profits from for decades?

        Big conglomerates should be sued and directed to stop operating with such level of impunity.

                          Great to see companies hold accountable for their actions. Plastic pollution is hazardous and must be stopped.

                            Holding corporations accountable for their contribution to pollution is an important step in promoting responsible practices and encouraging a shift towards more sustainable packaging solutions.

                                The lawsuit against PepsiCo by New York state underscores the growing legal scrutiny on major corporations for their role in plastic pollution. With PepsiCo identified as the single largest contributor, the case highlights the urgent need for accountability in addressing environmental concerns. While PepsiCo claims transparency in its efforts to reduce plastic use, the legal action signifies a broader trend, as evidenced by similar accusations against Coca-Cola, Danone, and Nestle, emphasizing the industry-wide importance of genuine commitment to sustainable practices amid increasing climate change concerns.
