Pringles has made its packaging better. Pringles is famous for its potato chips. However, the tube they come in is bad for the environment. It is made of many things. It has a plastic cap, a metal base, an aluminium cover, and foil-lined cardboard. It is difficult to recycle. The BBC called it "a recycler's nightmare".

Pringles made the tube easier to recycle. It promised 100 per cent recyclable packaging by 2025. It wants to reduce its impact on the planet. It said it has "worked hard to come up with this new can, which is widely recyclable". However, the new tube has a plastic lid. This will add to plastic pollution.
