Coca-Cola says it won't ban plastic bottles because its customers still want to use them

A Coca-Cola exec confirmed to the BBC at the World Economic Forum in Davos that it will continue to use single-use plastic bottles because there is a demand for them from customers.
"Business won't be in business if we don't accommodate consumers," Coca-Cola's senior vice-president for sustainability and public affairs told the BBC.
Coca-Cola's long-term goal is to have all of its packaging made from at least 50% recycled material by 2030.
In 2019, it was found to be the world's most polluting brand when it comes to plastic waste, according to a report by Break Free From Plastic.
