The fresh offerings from PepsiCo will feature fully recyclable plastic cups including rPET cups containing 20 percent post-consumer recycled content. Also available are compostable paper cups and wax cups made with plant-based materials acquired from sustainable managed forests.

The fountain cup portfolio mix allows customers, such as restaurants, stadiums and theme parks, and colleges and universities, to choose their green cups based on the available recycling or composting disposal facility in their localities.

Pepsi has also made the cups catchy with eye catching green images on them. Stating their environment significance, the company has included captions that scream “Wow, Our Cups are Fully Recyclable” or similar messages related to manufacturing materials used.
