Recycle for Veterans
When you recycle your bottles and cans with PepsiCo Recycling,
we provide dedicated support to further the Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for
Veterans with Disabilities' (EBV) mission to provide
training in entrepreneurship and small business
management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities
resulting from military service.
PepsiCo has helped many veterans receive valuable training in entrepreneurship and small business management so they can build their own business and pursue their dreams.
PepsiCo is the first 3-Star Partner of the Institute for Veterans and Military Families, the highest level of partnership. IVMF operates EBV.
PepsiCo has donated $2 million to EBV since 2010.
More than 120 million bottles and cans have been collected via PepsiCo Recycling in support of EBV.
