The British brand of PepsiCo potato chips, Walkers crisps, has announced that it will be creating a new biodegradable chip bag from its potato remains, according to a BBC interview with PepsiCo UK & Ireland President Richard Evans.
The potato peelings would otherwise be used as animal food, but the company believes it can deliver potato-based bags to UK shelves in as little as 18 months.
PepsiCo is also modifying what goes into the bags. It will use potatoes that require less water to make the chips. This will result in a 50 percent reduction in water usage by 2015. It will also serve as a pilot project for Pepsi’s worldwide chip brands
