More than 60 million plastic bottles end up in landfills every day. That’s why PepsiCo is launching “Change The Game” (CTG), a 5 stage competition offering students, graduates & professionals with up to 2 years work experience the chance to make their mark globally.

The main objective is solving this year’s sustainability challenge by completing as a team the following:
1- Coming up with an idea using a new low cost technology that would allow the collection, recycling & the profitable commercialization of plastic waste in emerging markets without the use of child labor or create a hazard to humans.
2- Creating a business model to develop products in our food and beverage categories that are scalable, financially viable and minimize or eliminate plastic packaging.

As awards, the finalists will have an opportunity to present their proposals to PepsiCo Region and Sector leadership team. In addition, the top 2 winning teams will receive a grant of $100,000 to bring their ideas to life for PepsiCo, and will be offered a job (or internship) at PepsiCo in their country/region.
