Keurig Dr Pepper Achieves Longstanding Sustainability Commitment to Make 100% of its K-Cup Pods Recyclable

Keurig Dr Pepper today announced that it has successfully achieved one of its longstanding sustainability commitments – all of the K-Cup® pods the Company produces are now recyclable.

The extensive effort involved converting more than 100 manufacturing lines to produce the pods now made from polypropylene #5 plastic. In addition, new packaging for the recyclable K-Cup pods features a green recyclable flag as well as the industry-respected How2Recycle® label that clearly communicates recycling instructions to consumers[1].

Keurig Dr Pepper produces approximately 80% of the coffee pods sold at retail[2] for use in Keurig® brewers and, earlier this year, began shipping to retailers the new recyclable format, which is now largely transitioned on retail shelves.
