Plastic pollution

Scientists estimate that between a quarter and a third of marine plastic pollution comes from the drinks industry. The problem is so severe that up to 85% of Australian marine birds are estimated to be affected by plastics. Many of them die as a result.
This needn’t be the case. By adding a refundable 10c to each bottle we can dramatically increase recycling and reduce plastic waste. South Australia and the Northern Territory already have schemes which work. Over 80% of bottles are recycled in SA, more than twice the rate of other states.
Despite this, beverage and packaging producers led by Coca Cola have stopped effective government action across Australia and have even taken the Northern Territory Government to court over their system which has already seen increased recycling rates.
