These are the companies being blamed for creating the most plastic pollution in the world’s oceans

The companies which are blamed for producing the highest amounts of plastic found in our oceans have been revealed.

Environmental charity Greenpeace has released data following a nine-month study carried out across 42 countries – as it emerges that a truckload of plastic is dumped in the sea every MINUTE.

Researchers found that Coca-Cola is the brand with the most items discovered in the oceans, followed by PepsiCo, Nestle, Danone and Mondelez International.

The top three, a report named Break Free From Plastic discovered, account for 14% of plastic pollution found worldwide.

An intact plastic Coke bottle was discovered in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, which is hundreds of miles from any inhabited land.

In a statement Greenpeace said: “As some of the largest companies in the world, Coke, PepsiCo, Nestle and the others on the list have the chance to be part of the solution to the plastic crisis. Instead they remain a part of the problem, selling us plastic drink containers and packaging we have no choice but to throw away.”
