Who are the 'worst offenders' when it comes to the packaging pollution emergency on our beaches?

Last month's action by Surfers Against Sewage was very successful:
Futures Forum: The Big Spring Beach Clean > a record-smashing 45,771 people showed up

And the biggest catches were from some of the biggest manufacturers: 

Coke, Pepsi and the rest
Revealed: the WORST offenders when it comes to the packaging pollution emergency on our beaches.
45,000 of you turned out for the biggest Spring Beach Clean ever -- but you didn’t just tidy up our beauty spots. You carefully categorised and counted up exactly what you found. And now we’ve analysed all the data. 2019’s worst companies for packaging pollution on our beaches are:
Coca Cola.  Walkers and Pepsi owner PepsiCo. Cadbury’s owner Mondelez.  McDonald’s…. and Nestlé.
We’ve sent a detailed report to the government who’re considering action. Can you help us sound the alarm and demand these companies clean up their act?
