PepsiCo ditches plastic rings for paper-based packs in U.S. & Canada

Sustainability

PepsiCo, on its pep+ sustainable packaging journey, is eliminating plastic rings on beverage multipacks across North America.

In a significant stride towards waste-free packaging, PepsiCo Beverages North America (PBNA) will launch eco-friendly paperboard alternatives, gradually rolling out in the U.S. later this year. A parallel shift to paperboard packaging is already underway in Canada.

By opting for paperboard wraps and clips, PepsiCo is revolutionising packaging for brands like Pepsi, Pepsi Zero, MTN DEW, Starry, Gatorade, and more, including 7Up in Canada.

The new packaging boasts easy shelf integration, consumer-friendly design, recycled materials, and full recyclability.

This innovation aligns with PepsiCo's pep+ goals, aiming to slash virgin plastic usage per serving across its global beverage and convenience foods selection by 50% before 2030. The transition is expected to eliminate millions of pounds of plastics from North American packaging, championing sustainability and circular packaging practices.
