If you are in college, drink PepsiCo products and have a good environmental idea, listen up. Cash is on the line.
PepsiCo Recycling is creating what it calls the Zero Impact Fund aimed at colleges and universities to provide funding for environmental ideas.
The company is out with news that colleges and universities can apply for up to $10,000 in funding for efforts that “focus on creating environmental, economic and/or social impacts that support your school's zero-impact journey.”
“Great ideas can come from anyone, and we want to empower our college partners by giving them the right resources to lead by example,” said Meagan Smith, PepsiCo Recycling program director, in a statement.
Deadline to submit a proposal is Nov. 1, and PepsiCo will evaluate one proposal per school.
PepsiCo Recycling has been working on with colleges and universities since 2010 to promote on campus recycling and already has awarded more than $70,000 to support those efforts, the company said.
