During a recent industry meeting, members from Keurig Dr Pepper outlined their efforts in ensuring that their products have a lasting positive impact on the Earth and its inhabitants. The initiative dubbed Drink Well. Do Good. focuses on four key areas: environment, supply chain, health and wellbeing, and communities.
In their presentation, KDP laid out their goals for creating less packaging waste, which includes converting to 100% recyclable material or compostable packaging by the year 2025. They also plan to obtain 100% of electricity from renewable sources in that same timeframe. In December, KDP announced that they have already achieved their goal of making all K-Cup pods recyclable by the end of 2020.
KDP also shared progress on their Let’s Play initiative which has provided play opportunities for over 379,000 kids across Ohio with six KDP-led playground builds in the last decade. They have also awarded more than 100 playground and sports equipment grants throughout the state.
