<nettime> CokeSpotlight


Working with Greenpeace, we've launched a global internet campaign to 
put some heat on Coca-Cola, one of the world's worst commercial HFC 
global warming polluters.

Check out the CokeSpotlight website ( - 
we've come up with  a comprehensive campaign toolkit including 
downloadable stickers, posters, postcards and email images. Coca-Cola 
is everywhere, so everyone can get involved with a local action. Pull 
what you need off the site, and let's get jamming!

The campaign's first goal is to put Coke on the spot as a sponsor of 
the Sydney 2000 Olympics, the world's first "Green Games". Only 100 
of Coke's on-site coolers and vending machines will comply with the 
Sydney Games' environmental guidelines. The other 1,700 machines will 
keep drinks cool using HFCs, one of the most potent greenhouse gases 
ever invented.

It's time for the Real Thing to do the Right Thing. Log on to the 
Cokespotlight website at

McDonald's and Coca-Cola's global HFC pollution is undermining the
