Keurig Dr Pepper Commits To Slashing Use Of Virgin Plastic

April 12, 2021: 12:00 AM EST
The third largest non-alcoholic packaged beverage company in North America, which used 208,000 metric tons of plastic packaging in 2018, has agreed to cut its use of virgin plastic for packaging by 20 percent by 2025. Citing new data on the growing plastic pollution problem, Berkeley, Calif.-based nonprofit foundation As You Sow filed shareholder proposals with ten leading consumer goods companies and retailers for 2021, including Keurig Dr Pepper, calling for commitments to reduce use of plastic packaging. KDP told As You Sow it will cut virgin plastic by 20 percent by using more recycled content, eliminating unnecessary material, redesigning packaging, and exploring reuse models.
