NEWS: Coca-Cola Crapola
Coca-Cola seem to be misbehaving in India. Shameful behaviour if true involving apparent pollution of groundwater AND the passing of dangerous 'fertiliser' onto villagers.
I was just gonna bookmark this article but it deserves a bit more.
A while ago, as some of you will remember, I tried to overcome my addiction to Diet Coke. I found a substitute in the form of Whole Earth Organic Ginger Drink (no added sugar either). Note: the page does not load fully in Firefox but works in IE.
I must admit that I have lapsed occasionally due to my other addiction to Jack Daniels and Coke.
As a result of reading the article I have vowed to renew and even double my efforts to stop myself financially supporting a company I believe to be brazenly breaching many of the ethical and sustainable standards I set as targets for myself.
We should encourage Coca-Cola to behave more ethically towards people and planet.
KarmaBanque have a great site and a superb Coca-Cola boycott in motion to achieve just that. For more info please visit the Coca-Cola page at KarmaBanque.com by clicking here.
We have a house-warming bbq on Sunday and so I will be drinking JD & Ginger! Bet it tastes sweeter!
