Wendy's Moves to Plastic to Improve Cup Recyclability

To help advance the goal of sustainably sourcing 100% of its customer-facing packaging by 2026, Wendy's collaborated Berry Global and LyondellBasell to move from a selection of plastic-lined paper cups with limited recyclability to single-substrate, clear plastic drink cups that more consumers will be able to recycle – an important pathway toward circularity. Based on a mass balance approach, the cups will also use 20% ISCC-certified, recycled plastic across all North America restaurants.
