HEALTH AND NUTRITION
Clear on Calories
We have also voluntarily committed to contribute to First Lady Michelle Obama’s efforts to make America’s families healthy by making informed choices about a balanced lifestyle by clearly displaying the calorie count of our products on labels and vending and fountain machines.
The beverage industry has also collectively worked to continue reducing beverage calories through exciting innovations, smaller portions, and greater promotion of our low-calorie and calorie-free products.

School Beverage Guidelines
The beverage industry is proud to have cut the total amount of calories shipped to schools by 88% over the last several years.
We have also removed our full-calorie products from the majority of America’s schools, resulting in a 95% reduction in full-calorie soft drink shipments to schools.

Our manufacturing facilities account for only 3/100ths of 1 percent of all public water usage. Even so, both the Coca-Cola Company and PepsiCo International have participated in several studies and efforts concerning water conservation and reclamation.

To help improve the environment, we produce packaging that is 100 percent recyclable. We also have reduced the amount of packaging used to deliver beverages and encourage consumers to become active recyclers, but we recognize that there is still more work to be done.
Recycling is a key component of our environmental mission and an important part of our business and our lives.
