Make Some Noise!

Tricia Jedele

So the 100% biodegradable packaging that PepsiCo uses for its Sun Chips snacks is going away because … well, isn’t it obvious?!

PepsiCo is taking the no-waste, completely compostable, producer-finally-taking-responsibility-for-the- waste-it generates packaging off the shelves because WE complained that the packaging makes too much noise. It is hard to believe that we as consumers would make the conscious effort NOT to buy a product simply because the part of the product that we usually throw away is too loud. The trash trucks barreling down the side streets to pick up garbage (not too loud), the people living near landfills raising their voices to complain about rodents and odors and air quality (not too loud), citizen voices raised in anger to complain about higher taxes to pay for the higher costs associated with disposal of trash (not too loud), but a socially responsible package, designed to reduce our carbon footprint, our trash footprint, our costs …too loud?

It’s time to shut up and make some noise! Be Loud, Be Proud … and, p.s. buy a composter.

  5. I don’t really like sunchips, and the bag was really loud, but anything that is worthwhile comes with a sacrifice. The 3 or 4 times I had sunchips in the loud bag, the noise was a reminder that I was doing something good. It’s too bad. If more companies actually caught on and made their bags the same way, it just would have became normal, and over time we would have just thought all bags sounded that way…..Keep up the good work

  9. I guess I’m discouraged that consumers can’t create a “loud” stink over the crunching sound a bag of chips makes, and not worry about the real stink coming from our landfills. Are these bags that much louder than the people laughing and talking at a back yard cook out? Are they louder than the music coming from the dorm room down the hall? It is absurd that people are able to rally together in a fight for quieter bags, yet cannot rally together in support of companies that are trying to do the right thing. Our value system is all out of whack and this “loud chip outrage” is a clear example. As a society, maybe we should start working on reducing how we waste our minds and start educating ourselves about the bigger picture. When our landfills have no more room, maybe you can just keep all your trash in your own back yard while you chomp away at your sunchips in a pleasantly quiet bag!
