New York sues PepsiCo Inc. for plastic pollution, alleging the company contaminated drinking water

New York Attorney General Letitia James announced a lawsuit against PepsiCo Inc. on Wednesday, accusing the soda-and-snack food giant of polluting the environment and endangering public health after its single-use plastics were found along the Buffalo River. The lawsuit filed in state Supreme Court aims to require PepsiCo and its subsidiaries, Frito-Lay Inc. and Frito-Lay North America Inc., to clean up its mess, where its single-use plastic packaging including food wrappers and plastic bottles have found a way to the shores of the Buffalo River and watershed, contaminating drinking water supply for the city of Buffalo.

      @princess_nel_268 I agree with you.. these corporates feel as if they are untouchable we need to hold them into account for their action, especially those that go against the target to curb climate change and conservation

        Companies must be held accountable for their actions and take responsibility for the environmental impact of their products. It's important for governments and individuals to work together to find sustainable solutions and reduce plastic pollution for the well-being of our planet and future generations.

            New York's decision to sue PepsiCo Inc. for plastic pollution and alleged contamination of drinking water underscores the growing concern and urgency surrounding the issue of plastic waste. Holding companies accountable for their role in environmental damage is an important step towards promoting responsible corporate practices and protecting public health. Plastic pollution poses significant threats to ecosystems, wildlife, and human well-being, and it is crucial for governments to take action. This lawsuit sends a strong message that polluting practices will face consequences, and it highlights the need for companies to adopt sustainable and environmentally friendly alternatives to single-use plastics.
