7-Eleven is now ringing up customers at 77,711 convenience stores globally.

"Since the inception of convenience retailing with the first 7-Eleven store in [Dallas] a lot has changed in how, when and where we do business,'' said President and CEO Joe DePinto. "As customers continue to redefine convenience, we redefine our approach to ensure that we are exceeding their expectations. Today, that means accelerating our sustainability efforts to address social and environmental issues that are important to our customers and the communities in which they live and work."

In addition to the sustainability initiatives already taking place at the local level, 7-Eleven collaborated with Plastic Bank to extract 140 metric tons of ocean-bound plastic from the environment in December 2021. According to the company, that's equivalent to 7 million single-use plastic bottles.
