A Sustainable Partnership
As a leader in the beverage industry, PepsiCo sets standards and creates a lifestyle around its branding. Part of setting standards is to set examples for future leaders and ground breakers on sustainable initiatives in all aspects, but certainly when it comes to waste production. Together with Florida Gulf Coast University, Pepsi will show Southwest Florida and its students how to build stronger communities through impactful projects.
Pepsi Beverage Match
Pepsi, our campus beverage partner, has created a Beverage Matching Program to help support campus community initiatives. Submit this form no less than three weeks prior to your event. It is open to all FGCU groups with events held on campus.
In perfect recycling mascot style, the Pepsi Recycling Roadster is an interactive vehicle that travels from campus to campus in search of opportunities to educate college students about recycling in interactive, fun ways!
Students take the time to engage in the Roadster's activities that point out impressive stats about plastic waste and what Pepsi is doing to encourage college students to take serious initiative on raising awareness of these global issues.
Pepsi's Zero Impact Fund
The Zero Impact Fund can grant up to $10,000 towards an impactful, winning idea to enhance Pepsi Recycling on campus. This includes efforts focused on zero waste, renewable energy, green transportation, and conservation of resources. Multiple awards can be granted to the same university.
Helping Pave Paths
In addition to discovering innovative ways to support student initiatives on campus, Pepsi also provides resources to support the student body and community with sponsorships that align with the university's strategic goals. For FGCU Pepsi is collaborating for an annual sustainability fund across campus. Pepsi will also become a major FGCU Athletics sponsor for our men's and women's sports.
