Coca-Cola is blocking a recycling scheme. Take action, http://bit.ly/stoptrashingaus_yt, ask your MP to support a national 'Cash for Containers' scheme.

In March, Coca-Cola won its court case to stop a popular and proven 10 cent recycling refund scheme in the Northern Territory -- a program that has already doubled recycling rates in the territory, and operated successfully in South Australia for over 30 years saving tens of millions of plastic containers from ending up in our beaches and oceans.

This loose rubbish is estimated to affect up to 65% of Australian seabirds. Some mistake the plastic for food. When they swallow too much, their tiny stomachs become so full they're unable to ingest any food -- literally starving to death on a full stomach.

Thanks also to Adrian Lux for donating his superb track 'Teenage Crime'. Adrian is a DJ from Sweden where recycling rates are amongst the best in the world thanks in part to a Cash for Containers scheme.
