Their piles of packaging have more to do with branding, marketing, and sales than the essential functions of protecting and transporting goods. AndPackaging symbolizes the disposable society we have become. More than half of all paper produced in the United States is used in paper packaging.

Every year millions of pounds of food packaging waste litter our roadways, clog our landfills, and spoil our quality of life. Over half of landfill waste is paper and wood products.

Fast Food Industry giants are big buyers of paper packaging from the forests of the Southern US. With nearly 100 packaging mills in the South, the packaging decisions of these corporations have a tremendous impact on our forests.

Southern forests are being destroyed to bring you fried chicken, burgers and fries, and super-sized convenience in a glut of wrappers, boxes and cups.

  • Fast food packaging makes up 20 percent of all litter
  • Food packaging takes up 15 percent of landfills
  • 3/4 of all food and drink packages come from forests
  • Over half of landfill waste is paper and wood products

Send a message to CEO's of the biggest fast food companies.  Today, you can ask them to reduce the company's packaging, stop using paper from endangered Southern forests and use more recycled paper!
