Tell Frito-Lay: Keep SunChips in Compostable Bags

    1. Petition by


Frito-Lay announced that it would immediately stop producing its biodegradable, compostable SunChips bags because consumers complained that the sacks were too noisy. These bags are made from plant-based materials and break down in a mere 14 weeks. They should be regarded as model food packaging, not discontinued simply because they're "too noisy."

The world's landfills are already piled high with non-biodegradable garbage. Tell Frito-Lay it's important to keep using its eco-friendly packaging. Sign our petition asking the company to keep selling SunChips in compostable bags.
