GLRPPR Sector Resource: Waste and Opportunity 2015: Environmental Progress and Challenges in Food, Beverage, and Consumer Goods Packaging

Title:
Waste and Opportunity 2015: Environmental Progress and Challenges in Food, Beverage, and Consumer Goods Packaging

Abstract:
Large brands like Dunkin Donuts, Burger King, KFC, MillerCoors, and Kraft Foods are wasting valuable materials through poor packaging sustainability policies -- to the tune of $11.4 billion a year. And by selling single-use food and beverage packaging that ends up littering streets or in the oceans instead of being recycled, they're not just wasting, they're contributing to global pollution. Waste and Opportunity 2015, a new report from As You Sow and the Natural Resources Defense Council, analyzes the packaging practices of 47 fast food chains, beverage companies, and consumer goods and grocery companies, highlighting leaders and laggards in these sectors.
