Casa Grande and Frito Lay

Frito-Lay Casa Grande plant is a great example of how Frito-Lay is working to minimize its impact on the environment. We want our fans to be in-the-know about some of the groundbreaking company-wide sustainability efforts we’re leading: At the Casa Grande plant, we’ve implemented technologies to recycle water, generate electricity and steam from renewable energy sources, achieved LEED certification and succeeded in sending nearly zero waste to the landfill. At all of our facilities, we reuse our shipping cartons up to six times before recycling them to help reduce waste. All Frito-Lay manufacturing plants are striving to divert at least 99% of waste from landfills.Frito-Lay added 1,200+ fuel-efficient Sprinter vehicles to its fleet along with converting 650 sales cars to hybrid vehicles to help reduce emissions. Now, we’re even using all electric route delivery trucks in some of our metropolitan markets.· For more than a decade, Frito-Lay North America has been committed to reducing the use of key major resources and the company’s overall environmental footprint, with the goal of: reducing water use by 75%; natural gas by 50%; electricity by 45% and fuel by 50% - all by 2020. Our environmental sustainability milestones at the Casa Grande plant are certainly helping us make progress on these goals. · Through the "Near Net Zero" project, Frito-Lay has gone further than any other U.S. food manufacturer in taking a production facility nearly "off the grid". 

I was sent an awesome snack pack of some of may favorites!

In our house we normally buy Frito Lay anyhow { its usually on sale, and it tastes better } But now since I know all about how they are going green and reducing such a HUGE carbon footprint we for sure will only purchase Frito Lay products!

My kids went nuts over Sun Chips. We all love them and Branden especially likes the Garden Salsa ones.
Hubs was really into the Hint of Lime Tostitos and I still stick the to regular ol potato chip!

see just how amazing Frito Lay is?

* I was sent this product free of charge to review with my family. All opinions are my own *
