PepsiCo Chairman and CEO Ramon Laguarta said in a statement.
Tackling plastic waste is one of my top priorities and I take this challenge personally, “As one of the world’s leading food and beverage companies, we recognize the significant role PepsiCo can play in helping to change the way society makes, uses, and disposes of plastics. We are doing our part to address the issue head-on by reducing, recycling and reinventing our packaging to make it more sustainable, and we won’t stop until we live in a world where plastics are renewed and reused.
Stacy Taffet, Vice President Water portfolio for PepsiCo said
“We are really excited to evolve our packaging across PepsiCo’s water portfolio to make a positive impact,”
By 2025 PepsiCo hopes to make 100% of its packaging recyclable, compostable or biodegradable. They will only use 25% of recycled plastic content in all its plastic packaging.
However, a report by Bloomberg The only true eco-friendly way to consume water is to drink it from the tap.
Such measures are little better than plastic and shouldn’t be done at all. Canned water is a marginal improvement over bottled water.
