NY AG Sues PepsiCo Over Plastic Pollution
PepsiCo., the global soft drink company, is being sued by the NYS Attorney General Tish James over the issue of single-use plastics pollution. The lawsuit alleges that the soft drinks giant “substantially causes public harm in Buffalo, has failed to warn consumers about the potential health and environmental risks of its single-use plastic packaging, and misleads consumers and the public about its efforts to combat plastics pollution”. From the press conference announcing the lawsuit, we hear first from Attorney General James followed by Jill Jedlicka of Buffalo Niagara Riverkeeper. By Mark Dunlea for Hudson Mohawk Magazine.
