Looking to do its part to protect the environment, Taco Bell has announced a new sauce packet recycling program. With 8.2 billion sauce packets used in the United States each year, the fast-food chain notes that the program will help it reach its long-term goal of sustainably convert all of its sauce packet plastic waste by 2025.

Currently, Taco Bell’s sauce plastics are made with non-recyclable plastics that require a specific process to convert into a sustainable material. Teaming up with recycling company TerraCycle, the initiative will utilize TerraCycle’s Loop recycling service that converts normally non-recyclable materials into hard plastic.

The inaugural environmental program will be launched later this year with Taco Bell customers set to take part with a free shipping method that is yet to be announced.
