Taco Bell sustainable packaging swap gets mixed reviews


In California, the paper nacho cheese cups Taco Bell has introduced in some restaurants to comply with plastic bans has divided the internet, with some patrons applauding the sustainability initiative and others complaining the cups are smaller and less durable

According to Mashed.com, which did a deep dive on the topic, the main complaint among Reddit’s “Live Mas” thread was the cups’ tendency to shed bits of fiber into customers’ cheesy goodness.

One person facetiously commented, “Now with FiberBoost,” while another suggested that, given Taco Bell’s cuisine, emerging bioplastics made from avocado pits might be more appropriate.
