How do you make a great tasting snacks without taking a bite out of the earth's natural resources? Luckily, our employees have been hard at work to help reduce the electricity we use to make each bag of Frito-Lay snacks. By using renewable energy like solar power and biofuels, by recycling heat and steam from our plants, and by monitoring how we use resources, we're aiming to use 45% less energy per bag of chips in 2017 than we did in 1999. We know what you’re thinking – wow.
