The haunting images of starving polar bears have become grim reminders that climate change is real and is destroying the delicate balance of our ecosystem. In addition to the melting ice, plastic pollution is also a major contributor to the destruction of the Arctic, and if serious changes are not made now, animals like polar bears and Arctic foxes could become mere memories.

A petition on Care2 points out that a 2017 study revealed that 300 billion pieces of plastic were floating in the Arctic, including many plastic bottles from the Coca-Cola corporation. The petition also makes notes that as a massive corporation, Coca-Cola is a big contributor to pollution and climate change. As many people may know, Coca-Cola has regularly used polar bears as a face for their winter ads. The petition’s author calls these ads “tone-deaf” and wants Coca-Cola to stop using polar bears as a marketing tool.

If you would like to see an end to these hypocritical ads from Coca-Cola, please take a moment to sign the petition and make your voice heard.

Plastic pollution is such a massive problem that scientists estimate that there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean by 2050. To learn more about how you can reduce your personal plastic usage, visit the One Green Planet #CrushPlastic page and check out these easy tips to cut plastic out of your life.

Many people are still completely unaware of the damaging effects of plastic, so please remember to share this with your network!

How many other companies use animals to promote their products, who may not be, in your opinion, environmentally friendly? Best be writing to Ben and Jerry's. The big pushers of environmental responsibility, who by the way, use cows to actually produce their product. If you hate Coke, you better go after all these other companies too.

Hipocrite marketing considered an example in the world for using emotions, good messages and families values (Christmas, relationships, childhood) just to $$$sell an addictive drink full of sugar, acid and caffeine to children. The drink is good in moderation. Their greed managed to make it bad for humanity and nature.

If a person was actually concerned about the planet we would have voted for Trumps only equal in votes Challenger, then Bernie dropped out and Hillary was the only one with enough votes. When many friends I knew wasted their vote on the 1% Gary and the 6% Jill they showed they'd rather lose than keep out the only climate denier in the race. Sure let's divert attention and just slap around Coca cola. I did my part to keep out Trump. The president is the one that change laws and regulations. Coca Cola is a side effect. Start with the source of good or evil , that's the president, and it's only your president that will some day subsidise fruits and veggies as they do beef.

As consumers, we drive the economy and what it gives and takes from us. We, as individuals, are the problem. I guess some people thought one candidate was so bad in this last election, they were willing to take an environmental risk to avoid that leadership. Please quit bringing the President and his supporters into these conversations. Many of them care about what happens to the earth, they are just more realistic about human nature and how hard it is for people to change. Most people, who pretend to care, aren't taking any steps to reduce their environmental footprint. Plastic is everywhere in your everyday life. Try to go a day without it...you sit on it, drink from it, ride in it, receive life saving medicines through it, watch it, listen to it, text on it, sleep on it and it protects you from harm. We have to continue to find better sources that are more environmentally friendly, cut down on its use when possible and dispose of it in a responsible manner. Unless, we find something better, plastic is here to stay. We aren't trolls just because we disagree about some of the statements or methods here. And if we keep referring to people as...the other side.....we will never change anything. Everyone needs to work together.
