Coca-Cola has said that it will not ditch single-use plastic bottles because consumers still want them.
The firm's head of sustainability Bea Perez told the BBC that removing single-use plastic entirely could alienate customers and damage sales.
Speaking at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, Ms Perez said, "Business won't be in business if we don't accommodate consumers".
"So as we change our bottling infrastructure, move into recycling and innovate, we also have to show the consumer what the opportunities are. They will change with us."
According to the BBC, Coca-Cola makes around three million tons of plastic packaging a year, which equates to roughly 200,000 bottles a minute!
Coca-Cola has pledged to recycle as many plastic bottles as it uses by 2030.
