PepsiCo has joined the consortium of global consumer goods companies, including Unilever, to further develop and scale the world’s first recyclable paper bottle, initially developed by Diageo and Pilot Lite.

It is our belief at PepsiCo that no single organization or industry can solve the plastic waste challenge on their own. That is why we are working on innovative solutions with peers pre-competitively through partnerships like this with Pulpex Limited, as well as others like our work with the Carbios Consortium on enzymatic recycling, the development of a renewable bottle with NaturALL Bottle Alliance and our work with Danimer Scientific on compostable and bio-based flex films. Our hope is that we can leverage our scale and reach to accelerate change and meaningful progress through collaborative, holistic solutions.

“Innovative solutions and partnership are critical to driving meaningful progress toward a circular economy. The Pulpex consortium is well positioned to deliver sustainable packaging at scale and across industries, having impact beyond what any organization could achieve alone. We’re proud to be a part of it.”
