Sheesh. Can’t drink Pepsi because it changed to mimic the Obama 2008 logo. Now, Coke goes stupid
(Montreal Gazette) Cans of Coca-Cola are going from red to white as part of a new multimillion-dollar project promoting awareness about climate change.
The new design is part of the soft-drink maker’s new partnership with WWF, the environmental group formerly known as the World Wildlife Fund, to protect polar bear habitat in Canada and other Arctic nations.
The company will donate $2 million to WWF as part of the partnership as well as matching as much as $1 million in donations from North Americans.
Picture of the new can is below the fold.
They also state Coca-Cola will be “water-neutral” by 2020. Why not now? Who’ll remember the pledge in 2020?
Anyhow, the story comes via Tom Nelson, who dug up 6 reasons to call BS on Coke, including:
6. Coca Cola deliberately injects “global warming pollution” into your soda. It’s said that if you could get ALL of the CO2 out of the cola it would fill a volume about four times the volume of the cola itself.
Uh, huh. I’ll stick with my preferred ginger ale. Schwepps, Canada Dry, whatever is on sale. Except for the cheap stuff. Yuck! (I like it, and it is caffeine free. I mostly avoid caffeine. Gives me migraines, plus, don’t need it.)
