Here is what Sun Chips wrote as their status.
"There have been some questions about our compostable bag, so we wanted to set your minds at ease. The compostable bag isn't going away. We're committed to renewable packaging solutions and will continue to use 100% compostable packaging on specially-marked Original flavor SunChips® snacks. In the meantime we're busy working on the next-generation bag that addresses consumer feedback, so stay tuned." Sun Chips Facebook page Tuesday Sept 5th 2010.
Today when I woke up I was very angry. Maybe my night of sleep charged my batteries, I don't know. But I do know I was pist off. Yes I said it, PIST OFF! Now all those would be compostable bags will be replaced with plastic ones. Oh Beth from FPF would be so proud of me. The thought of all that plastic makes me sick! I thought that Frito Lay was taking a step in the right direction. I actually had warm fuzzies in my tummy. Literally. I had hope. I had even shared SunChips Facebook page with all my friends. I feel dooped.
So today I stood up and said "NO MORE!" Well not literally but in my mind I did. So I picked up my laptop and decided to stand up for what I believe. I created a new group on Facebook called boycott Frito Lay/Sun Chips. There you can find Frito Lays phone number, website, and phone number. Please take a moment of your time and express how you feel about Frito Lays dumb decision to take away compostable bags. If we ban together maybe we can make a difference. Lets share my new Facebook group and start the process. We can make a difference because we are the consumers. We determine which products make it and which don't. If we don't buy it they will have to bring it back or come up with new compostable bags. Nuff said.
