|Pepsi launches compostable and recyclable cups
The next time you fill up a fountain drink at your local fast food
restaurant or movie theatre, you could be drinking out of a compostable
plastic cup, thanks to a new green Pepsi initiative. The new line of eco-friendly drinking cups
being rolled out across the US Foodservice industry is going to reduce
the environmental impact of the drinks, and will also help spread
positive messaging about going green.
The eco friendly line of cups
The new line of cups come in 3 varieties:
- Fully recyclable clear plastic cups, made using 20% post-consumer recycled materials
- Compostable paper cups (as seen in the banner image above)
- Wax cups made out of sustainably sourced plant-based materials
Check out some close-up shots of what the cups look like below. They
are even better looking than the past non-environmentally friendly cups,
and will be sure to draw any drinker’s attention towards the great
green messaging that goes along with them.
The Pepsi Promise
In 2011 alone, Pepsi has come out with some great green initiatives,
primarily focused on reducing plastic consumption and recycling. For
All of the green initiatives are based around The Pepsi Promise, which is as follows:
To be a good citizen of the world, protecting the world’s
natural resources through innovation and more efficient use of land,
energy, water and packaging.
Pepsi’s green efforts have so far been setting a great green example,
and the introduction of the new recyclable and compostable eco-friendly
cups is sure to continue the trend.
