Give up soft drinks, 1018°

Think of the energy used to manufacture, bottle & transport soft drinks for no nutritional value.
What a waste!

84 comments about this action

I gave up soft drink for a year and half, then started again recently. Stupid stupid!

Okay, I'll take the pledge. I'll give them up at home. When I'm out, if there's no other option I'll drink them, but I won't ever buy individivual plastic bottles - including juice.

Does that count?

How about ginger ale? That helps get rid of my nausea, even more quickly than ginger tea or ginger snaps.

Otherwise, yeah, count me in. I loved soft drinks when I was a kid. When I worked night shift, I had about 3 or 4 liters per day of Coke or Pepesi. Now, my stomach is in bad shape, but has done so much better after cutting WAAAAAAYYYY back on caffeine and cutting out beef.

i'm interested to know how much carbon dioxide is used in industrial production of softdrinks... let alone the extra energy used to produce them and the sugar contained in them.

in July 2008

soft drinks (apart fro being C02 capsules) are sugar hits which stimulate insulin response in humans - basically a life shortening bilogical process. drink fresh water, leave out the additives, keep yourself and your kids free of chemicals which stimulate hyperactivity and its consequnses on human behaviour.

Water is the drink for humans (plus an occasional americano...).

Water is still my favorite thirst quencher.

I don't drink carbonated drinks. My only softdrink is homemade sun tea.

in September 2008

I don't like soda or really any other soft drink exept for nestea, which is now off my list of drinks.

in December 2008

No more sodas! Total empty calories, full of chemicals, bad bad bad stuff!

I stopped 6 months ago- it was hard the first month, after that it got easy. Now a glass of water is more refreshing than any old brand of carbonated drink used to be. Amazing!

I'm lucky to have never liked carbonated drinks. I can't claim credit for this one - I simply don't like them. Do I still get the points that go with this action?!

in March 2009

Don't worry about the CO2 from carbonation causing problems. All they do is use CO2 from industrial waste gas. When you drinking the soda you're just releasing that. Bottling the CO2 just delays the release by a few days.

What is more important is that the carbonation causes bitterness which is offset by adding extra sugar. That extra sugar causes extra destruction to both you and the environment.

I'm questioning if this really matters for an environmental perspective. Sure, from a health perspective, sugar isn't good for me, and even with alternative sweeteners, my teeth probably doesn't like the acidity... but I'm confident there are a thousand other things I eat/drink/do which are more of an environmental problem. I wonder if the benefit from cutting out soft drinks would be dwarfed by even a tiny change in your driving habits, etc.

in July 2009

I had never liked the after taste of soft drinks. From an environmental perspective, I was lucky enough to observe the impact of tons of plastic bottles left in some remote rural areas in South America. The impact was so ever obvious for me.

in November 2009

Soft drinks are death in a container. I'm lucky in that I recognized this a long time ago. Diet soft drinks have been shown to deplete and short-circuit calcium deposition in the bones of young and adult women. Splenda (an artificial sweetener) is now showing up in municipal water supplies. Sweeteners aren't necessarily bad for you in moderation, but a single 12-oz. can of vanilla coke has 40 grams of sugar. That is a huge pile. Be they sweetened or diet they do nothing to maintain, or enhance good health.
