Plastic pollution is ruining our planet where over 380 million tons of plastic are being produced every year as per Plastic Oceans, a U.S.-based non-profit that works to end plastic pollution. 

Also, every year over 10 million tons of plastics are dumped into our oceans, disrupting aquatic habitats. 

However, some companies have taken up their corporate responsibility to help reduce plastic usage. 

PepsiCo  (PEP) - Get PepsiCo, Inc. Report is one of those companies. The company has pledged a 20% reduction in total virgin non-renewable plastic use by 2030.

McDonald’s  (MCD) - Get McDonald's Corporation (MCD) Report is also “drastically” reducing plastics in Happy Meal Toys by 2025.

“Our next generation of customers care deeply about protecting the planet and what we can do to help make our business more sustainable. We’re always exploring where we can drive greater impact, including the transformation of beloved icons like the Happy Meal,” said McDonald’s Chief Sustainability Officer Jenny McColloch, on Tuesday.

The U.S. coffee-chain giant Starbucks had ditched plastic straws since September 2020.
