Starting today Coca‑Cola is trading in the signature red can for white and then covering it with polar bears in order to raise awareness for the threatened species. Coca‑Cola is now going to commit $2 million over five years to partnership with a hardcore environmental group the World Wildlife Fund because Coke is worried about wildlife conservation. Or are they?
"No, they're not. Bullcrap," Glenn said when he read the news.
"I think it's wonderful, wonderful when people decide to do something and use capitalism to make things better. However, here's what bothers me. Newman's Own is genuine. This Coca‑Cola polar bear crap is just that. They don't care about a polar bear," Glenn explained.
"I think it's a total sham on the polar bear thing. It is ‑‑ if I'm not mistaken, it's a provable sham," Glenn said.
"Just the transportation of their products alone around the world are much worse for the environment than anything they could possibly do donating to the World Wildlife Fund," Stu explained.
"A million evil Tea Partiers could not equal the amount of emissions that Coca‑Cola's responsible for and they're telling us about climate change? It's absurd."
And as for the polar bears? Stu said "they've gone up five times in population."
"It's idiotic. It's just a PR move to show that they care about green," Stu said.
