We already know that plastic is choking our oceans – now scientists have found it inside our blood!
A terrifying new study found microplastics in the blood of 80% of test subjects – half of them from the kind of plastic found in drink bottles.
Major producers like Coca Cola and Nestle simply aren’t doing enough. They are turning the planet, and our bodies, into plastic trash heaps. So we have a new plan:
Buy up shares in these plastic polluting giants and fight them from the inside!
We know shareholder activism works: a SumOfUs shareholder resolution forced Apple to publish its first-ever human rights policy.
So if enough of us chip in, SumOfUs will buy stock in these companies and other major plastic producers – then work to rally other shareholders, turn up at their AGMs, and file resolutions to ratchet up pressure on execs over their polluting ways.
For the next 24 hours we’ll use everything you give to generate matching donations from big funders, doubling your impact -- can you help buy a piece of Nestle and Coke and stop their plastic addiction?
