Coca-Cola’s Big Clean Up
Coca-Cola HBC, in partnership with Volunteer Now, the National Trust and Volunteer Ireland undertook another ambitious volunteering initiative on Thursday 7 October with an estimated 100 employees across the island of Ireland partaking in their annual ‘Big Clean-Up’.
Coca-Cola volunteers took to three beaches across the island – Murlough Beach in Co. Down, Portmarnock in Dublin and Renville in Galway – to remove litter from the coastline.
Eighty-six bags of litter, weighing more than half a tonne, were removed from beaches over the course of the day thanks to the efforts of volunteers.
The initiative is part of Coca-Cola commitment to support a World Without Waste; the company’s strategy to design more sustainable packaging, collect back its packaging for recycling, and partner with communities, NGOs and the wider industry to clean-up the planet.
