Contents  Instant coffee, milk powder, food seasoning, shampoo and toothpaste sachets formed the majority of plastic waste collected in a week-long coastal cleanup in a reclamation area in the Philippines.

Nestlé, Unilever, and Procter & Gamble are among the biggest contributors to plastic pollution in the Philippines, a plastic waste study led by environmental group Greenpeace has found.

Volunteers sifted through plastic waste along a 200-hectare length of land on Freedom Island, off the coast of Parañaque in Metro Manila, from 13 to 20 September, and found that multinational companies were three of the top five contributers to the waste.
