As more companies in the food and beverage industry are beginning to rethink their packing practices, one of America’s biggest fast-food chains is making sure it’s not falling behind.
Taco Bell has recently announced its latest commitments to clean up its environmental footprint by getting its packaging recyclable, compostable, or reusable at all locations across the globe within the next five years. The fast-food restaurant will also be removing environmentally-harmful chemicals from its packaging materials, as well as committing to “celebrate vegetarian” options, expanding the all-vegetarian menu they launched in 2019.
But the emphasis in their new initiative will be on changing a major part of the fast-food experience by using reusable dine-in options in stores where that’s an option, and working recycling and composting into their store models.
Taco Bell’s newest commitments show that bigger brands are starting to take more accountability, and we’re excited to see if more good news like this will surface from the industry in 2020.
