SunChips maker hears complaints about loud bags
The bags were launched in April 2009 with a big marketing effort to play up their compostability because they’re made from plants and not petroleum based plastic.
But that which makes them compostable also makes them loud. The bags have a different molecular structure from the original packaging, and they’re stiffer. People complained about the ray ban sunglasses noise. Groups on Facebook abound with names such as “I wanted SunChips but my roommate was sleeping .”
The bag was produced by NatureWorks, ray ban sunglasses a unit of Wayzata based agribusiness Cargill. Under the trade name Ingeo, NatureWorks has promoted plant ray ban sunglasses based p ray ban sunglasses lastics as a green alternative to petroleum based materials.
Cargill and NatureWorks officials sounded bemused Tuesday by the sudden interest in the crinkly biodegradable bags. “True change does not come quietly,” said Steve Davies, spokesman for NatureWorks.
So are NatureWorks and Frito Lay working on a quieter solution?
“We’re pretty confident, as they are, that there’s a fix,” Davies said. “But it’s up to them to talk about the timing.”
Frito Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez said the company is developing its next generation of biodegradable bags and will use what it learned with the SunChips effort.
