Conclusion

I believe that Coca-Cola is a very decent company, which is why I based my project on it. I have given the reasons for my opinion throughout this website. Coke started as a small company in Atlanta, Georgia, and has become one of the biggest in the world. I hope that this website was helpful, and had useful facts about Coke. I received all of my information from www.coke.com.

Coke Music

On Coca-Cola's website(www.coke.com) you can listen to and download music. Coke sponsers very many concerts that play all around the world. On the website, you can actually make your own music with the "music mixer." After your done making a song, you can chat with other people, and let them hear your songs. You can listen to music all day long on Coke FM, which is a radio station that can be accessed from the website.

Coca-Cola and the community

Coke is involved in many programs that help everyone around the world. Coke belives that everyone who wants an education, should get an education, this is why they have set up many programs all around the world to teach children and their families. Coke is also trying to eliminate HIV/AIDS by inventing the Coca-Cola Africa Foundation, which travels throughout Africa, teaching people how to prevent HIV/AIDS. Coke also has the Tiger Woods Foundation, which kids and their families can play on a golf team run by Tiger Woods. Also, Coke is a very enviormental company, they spend about $2 billion in a year on recycling. Obviously, Coke cares a lot about the community, and uses their profits to do so.

The begining of Coke

On May 8th, 1886, a local pharmasist from Atlanta, Georgia named Dr. John Smith Pemberton created a carbonated caramel drink named Coca-Cola. During the first year, Coke was sold as a fountain drink for $0.05 a glass. In the begining, only about nine glassess were sold a day. Coke was originally bottled in a candy store in Mississippi. When Dr.Pemberton died in 1888, he sold his company to Asa G. Candler.
