We all know what a disaster the first Sunchips compostable packaging launch was, at least in the U.S. It was the first high-profile mainstream effort to do so, and consumers crumpled it quickly because of the high decibel bag. Thankfully, Frito Lay didn’t just call it quits, but instead came back fighting with a newly quieter bag, cautiously being rolled out now. || Read more

Reusable Packaging Bags

At Tony Fisher’s Big Green Earth Store on South Street in Scranton, PA, most customers — he guesses 95 percent — bring their own bags.And still, his committed greenies buy more.How many? He shrugs. In a year, “thousands.”
