I was sat on a train this afternoon when I had a possibly astonishing thought, specifically about how peoples use of Coke can contribute in a convoluted way to degredation of the environment. It might be wise of me to clarify that I'm not talking about Cocaine, just a humble can of Coca-Cola, Diet-Coke or Coke-Zero; you're welcome to take your pick. Whilst it is amusing to note that Coke wasn't Cocaine free until around about 1929, there really wasn't ever much in there in the first place and it was really just extract of coca leaf.
My interesting thought was around the concept about how Coke is produced locally, well perhaps not as locally as around the back of Tesco's but more so in plants in a specific country. I don't know how it works exactly, but I'm making the assumption that Coke consumed in the UK is produced here. Disregarding post-mix drinks that you get in a pub, a can of Coke in the UK will taste the same as bottled Coke, where ever you are in the country.
