Coca Cola: Stop selling plastic water bottles in the Grand Canyon!

Join us in telling the National Park Service that we won’t stand for big corporations calling the shots in our nation’s parks, especially when it comes to plastic pollution. Ban the sale of plastic water bottles in the Grand Canyon!

To: Director of the U.S. National Park Service
From: Concerned citizens
Subject: Stop selling plastic water bottles in the Grand Canyon!

The National Parks Service was weeks away from finalizing plans that would have eliminated the sale of plastic water bottles in the Grand Canyon, a plan that is popluar with the people and good for the environment. $300,000 has already been used to develop a series of refillable water stations around the park for the Grand Canyon’s 5 million annual visitors.

Yet despite popular sentiment and significant investment, the National Park Service is scrapping these plans. Coca-Cola has expressed its “preference” for expanding recycling programs rather than implementing the ban on bottles because it cuts into their profits. The National Park Service's duty is to preserve and protect the Grand Canyon for the public and to serve its visitors. It's not to preserve the profits of a corporation.

We won’t stand for big corporations calling the shots in our nation’s parks, especially when it comes to plastic pollution. Reinstate the ban on selling plastic bottles in the Grand Canyon.

Sincerely,
Concerned citizens

Since these corporations will claim that pollution is a people problem and not a corporation problem, then, they must stop producing pollutants like plastic water bottles until the “people” problem is completely resolved. If they continue to produce these products despite the resolution of the “people” problem , then they are an accessory to the pollution problem and just as much to blame as the so called “people”. Ban these bottles and all other similar items until the problem is resolved. In fact, let’s go back to returnables; it’ll create jobs.

Everyone knows how potentially harmful plastic bottles can be for the environment, and how litter could take away from the natural beauty of the Grand Canyon. Recycling, while a valiant effort, would not be necessary if people would reduce their use of plastic in the first place. Even recycled plastic can eventually find its way back into the environment. Please, for the health and majesty of our few remaining national parks, continue the ban on plastic bottles in the Grand Canyon! Coca Cola does not need the extra profit, but our national parks need as much help as possible.
