Coca-Cola just won a court battle to defeat a 10-cent bottle refund program run by an Australian state government.

The government says 35.5 million containers have so far been recycled under the initiative, The Australian reports.

More than 111,000 people from 150 countries around the world signed a petition by corporate watchdog SumOfUs.org, demanding Coca-Cola end its opposition to the program. And yesterday, the company called police to its Sydney headquarters to stop a protest led by Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO David Ritter and Clean Up Australia chairman Ian Kiernan, Adelaide Now reports.
