Ethical cola

If you are a cola drinker, you may be interested to know about a couple of alternatives to the big-brands such as Coke and Pepsi. Both Mecca-Cola and Qibla Cola are claiming to be an ethical alternative to their more well-known competitiors. Mecca-Cola claims to give 10% of profits to charities operating in the Palestinian territories and a further 10% to European NGOs, while Qibla Cola is promising 10% of profits will go to good causes in each country that the product is distibuted.

Presumably, there will be no violent or underhanded repression of trade unions from these companies, either.

    I'll reciprocate.
