Fairly small since I only collect LE cans and cans from various trips. My cousin in Manila has a 400sq.ft. room just packed with Coke stuff, floor to ceiling, in glass cabinets.

BTW I still have an unopened box of gold cans if you're looking.

Can I get a source for this? I do agree with you but the number seems a bit high.

Environment Canada suggest a slight increase in population in the next 10-25 years

correct me if i'm wrong but i remember the commercial saying that coke will donate $2M to the cause...over 5 years. To me 2M over five years sounds like 400k/year which is probably 30 seconds worth of revenue for coke. hell, even 2M/year for coke is nothing! super lame attempt at goodwill marketing imho.

The thing is, they don't have to. It could go to something else. Yeah, probably marketing, but who's going to say "no" to the funding? Coke sponsors all kinds of other things.

I have two cans for my display case. Thanks for the offer, though. I have all four of the aluminum Olympic bottles, as well as both plastic Fifa soccer ball bottles, last Christmas Ornament bottle, and shorty, classic glass bottle. There are so many different types of Coke bottles - mind blowing. I can just imagine your cousin's collection.

That's true i guess. I just see it more as a marketing ploy/cash crab than a philanthropic action. What's next? Pink cans for breast cancer? A moustache'd can for Movember?....actually i would have totally gone out to collect that.

I liked the white cans, tasted the same, cost the same, but was different. I don't usually buy coke anymore, but I picked up a case for the white cans.

I will say they look a lot like the diet cans, and can imagine why retarded americans got confused and pissed off.
