In order to help hit the zero-waste goal for the Super Bowl in Minneapolis this year, the NFL along with partners Aramark, PepsiCo, US Bank Stadium, and the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority turned to compostables.
The stadium’s food and beverage service provider Aramark said that they had made more than 70 different products such as cups, trays, straws, and utensils compostable.
