To make its packaging fully recyclable, compostable, and reusable by 2025, the company is working with TerraCycle to develop a solution to combat hot sauce packaging waste.
At present, the fast-food chain uses approximately 8.2 billion hot sauce packages in the U.S. alone, all of which ultimately end up in landfills. Taco Bell is hoping to pilot a free and accessible program for consumers to partake in. If successful, this solution could potentially extend to the greater fast-food industry, potentially making it more sustainable as a whole.
