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.
