Sustainable America

 

Food is fuel. The consumption of food and fossil fuels are inextricably linked. Their production is nearing capacity, and shortages in both are a very real, near term possibility. Without a concerted effort at all levels to separate the two—and to develop solutions to agricultural and energy shortcomings—we will be faced with a global crisis.

Learn how Sustainable America, Frito-Lay and GreenTowns are working both locally and nationally to help find solutions to the impending food/fuel crisis.

Frito-Lay. In order to keep our environmental promise, Frito-Lay is continually finding new and better ways to reduce emissions from our manufacturing plants and our delivery vehicles.

 

  • From 2006 to 2007, changes at our facilities and in our fleet lowered our CO2 emissions by 96 million pounds. And in every plant, dedicated Green Teams keep an eye on everyday operations, always looking for ways to lower our impact even more.

 

  • By continuing to improve our processes and enhance our fleet, we're looking forward to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions for every bag of chips we make by another 14% from 2002 levels.

Join us in the Special Features tent at Live Green CT! at Taylor Farm Park in Norwalk, CT for this very special event.
