What does coca cola do to hurt the environment?

    In India, there exists widespread concern over how Coca-Cola is produced. In particular, it is feared that the water used to produce Coke may contain unhealthy levels of pesticides and other harmful chemicals. It has also been alleged that due to the amount of water required to produce Coca-Cola, aquifers are drying up and forcing farmers to relocate. In 2003, the Centre for Science and Environment (CSE), a non-governmental organisation in New Delhi, said aerated waters produced by soft drinks manufacturers in India, including multinational giants Pepsico and Coca-Cola, contained toxins including lindane, DDT, malathion  and chlorpyrifos — pesticides that can contribute to cancer and a breakdown of the immune system. Environmental degradation in the form of depletion of the local ground water table due to the utilisation of natural water resources by the company poses a serious threat to many communities. Packaging used in Coca-Cola’s products has a significant environmental impact but the company strongly opposes attempts to introduce mechanisms such as container deposit legislation.
