Taco Bell to reuse hot sauce packets

CNN – Taco Bell is partnering with a recycling company to give its hot sauce packets a “spicier second life that doesn’t involve a landfill,” the fast food chain announced.

Taco Bell is hoping that by 2024, packaging used by its customers will be fully “recyclable, compostable, or reusable” across all of its 7,000 global locations. Its pilot program with TerraCycle is expected to shape its future recycling efforts.

The chain said the United States uses more than 8 billion sauce packets every year — a number which they worry could be damaging the environment. About 710 million metric tons of plastic will pollute the environment by 2040 if action isn’t taken, according to a recent study published in “Science.”

Specific details about the program have not been released yet. However, Taco Bell did reveal that the recycling pilot program will launch later this year and that participation will be simple and involve free shipping.

Taco Bell said it’s the first fast food brand to use TerraCycle, a New Jersey-based company that helps big businesses become greener.
