A Plastic Surgery: Coca-Cola’s Hidden Secrets

Every second, another ten tons of plastic is produced. 10% of all plastic produced ends up in the oceans, leading to predictions that, by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea. Faced with this global scourge, more and more businesses are promising to recycle, including the Coca-Cola Company, a group that sells 4000 plastic bottles around the world every second. Can we depend on the promises made by these multinationals? And is recycling the solution?

"A Plastic Surgery: Coca-Cola's Hidden Secrets" creates awareness for the subject of plastic packaging, especially plastic bottles, as used by Coca Cola. The film shows the devastating ecological and social effects of using plastic. The investigative reporters also succeed in confronting Coca Cola with their own untruths and empty promises in interviews.
