While many fast food and fast casual companies have been quick to hop aboard the plant-based bandwagon, Taco Bell stood its ground with a stance that vegetarian meant exactly that, as in beans or potatoes.
LOUISVILLE, Ky., April 26, 2021 /3BL Media/ – Yum! Brands (NYSE:YUM), parent company of KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell and The Habit Burger Grill restaurants, today announced it will decrease its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions 46% by 2030 in partnership with its franchisees, suppliers and producers as part of its broader strategy to address climate change.
The ability to recycle sauce packets is very important in achieving Taco Bell's goal of making all consumer-facing packaging recyclable, compostable, or reusable by 2025 in restaurants across the globe.
Taco Bell knows its fans have more than just a mild obsession with its hot sauce packets, with 8.2 billion sauce packets used in the U.S. each year. They're iconic. But today, they're not recyclable. That's why Taco Bell will be collaborating with international recycling leader TerraCycle later this year to give its sauce packets a spicier second life that doesn't involve a landfill. Taco Bell, no stranger to industry firsts, is the first quick-service restaurant brand to partner with TerraCycle to tackle recycling flexible film packets.
How2Recycle, the leading recycling labeling system in the US and Canada, is excited to welcome Yum! Brands and their KFC, Pizza Hut, Taco Bell, and The Habit Burger Grill brands into the How2Recycle label program. Yum!
