Did you know that all of our packaging is 100 percent recyclable? If you are frequent Sip & Savor reader, you may have read about the beverage industry’s longstanding commitment to environmental stewardship.

Not only is the beverage industry continuously innovating to reduce our environmental footprint, we also support community recycling projects from coast to coast. For example, we partnered with the Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection to provide technical assistance to local communities in the state to help them implement a Pay-As-You-Throw (PAYT) waste system.  This program offers an immediate and significant incentive to households that reduce trash and increase recycling by charging residents a fee for each unit of waste they discard instead of a fixed fee per household.

We are doing our part to help protect the environment, and through this and other programs we’re making it easier for you to do your part, too.
