SunChips nix loud, eco-friendly bags

PLANO, Texas, Oct. 5 (UPI) -- Texas-based snack company Frito-Lay said it is getting rid of its 100 percent compostable SunChips bags after customer complaints about the loud packaging.

Officials with the Plano company said the chips will be returned to their previous, non-recyclable bags while developers work to make the eco-friendly packaging less noisy, USA Today reported Tuesday.

"Clearly, we'd received consumer feedback that it was noisy," Frito-Lay spokeswoman Aurora Gonzalez said. "We recognized from the beginning that the bag felt, looked and sounded different."

Gonzalez, who said the Original flavor chips will still feature the eco-friendly packaging, said the company will continue trying to develop environmentally safe chip bags without the extra noise.

"We are on a journey with compostable packaging," Gonzalez said.
