Things will be slightly different soon when you get a huge pile of sauce packets from Taco Bell.
Nothing will change about the taste of the sauce, but the packets themselves will soon be recyclable. Taco Bell’s partnership with Terra Cycle will soon ask customers to send in their recyclable packets to give them a second life.
“In the food industry today, there is no widely available solution for recycling the flexible film packets that are so commonly used for condiments,” said Liz Matthews, Taco Bell’s Global Chief Food Innovation Officer in a press release. “So, we’re thrilled to leverage the expertise of TerraCycle to recycle our iconic sauce packet packaging in a way that’s as bold and innovative as our menu.”
While that seems like some work on all parties involved, Taco Bell is said to have more options down the road when the new packets debut this year.
