7‑Eleven continually looks for ways to improve product packaging by using eco-friendly materials, reducing content, and decreasing the use of plastic whenever possible. Many of our eco-friendly packaging solutions include renewable or recycled content or are derived from sustainable resources. We work hard to reduce packaging materials whenever possible without compromising product quality or safety. Our goals is to shift to eco-friendly packaging for 50% of Private Brand products by 2030.

Innovating with Plant-Based Plastic

Introduced plant-based fountain straws used for cold dispensed beverages. The new straw material is derived from raw materials such as corn and may avoid up to 1 million pounds of petroleum-based plastic per year.

Reimagining the Fountain Cup

Introduced a new, lighter weight fountain cup that uses less plastic. The change may avoid up to 1.1 million pounds of virgin plastic annually.

Packaging from Sustainable Resources

Replaced large plastic chicken wing box with paper corrugate alternative, eliminating up to 437,000 pounds of plastic annually. The new paper alternative is certified by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative.

Promoting Sustainable Procurement

Committed to working with suppliers toward a goal of sourcing 100% cage-free eggs for all U.S. and Canada stores by 2025, based on available supply.
