PepsiCo, the official beverage and snack partner of Expo 2020, is showcasing its The Drop pavilion, located in the Sustainability Quarter and designed to resemble a giant water drop made of 41,000 recycled cans, to convey the company's key message about the essential role of sustainability in preserving the planet.
The pavilion carries messages that aim to raise awareness of the importance of using sustainable technologies for food production and agriculture, while encouraging farmers to make personal efforts to conserve water.
The Drop also allows visitors to immerse themselves in the Aquafina experience. They can see PepsiCo's efforts to help farmers around the world, introducing them to sustainable water management practices, smart water use in manufacturing and innovative efforts to reduce, recycle and reinvent packaging.
In an exciting educational journey, the pavilion features information and statistics on PepsiCo's sustainability and water conservation efforts in many countries, including introducing farmers to sustainable irrigation practices in countries such as Egypt and Pakistan, through smart programmes tailored to the needs of each country.
PepsiCo has committed to collecting and recycling PepsiCo waste generated at the Expo 2020 site during the six months of the mega-event, with the aim of accelerating efforts to reduce, recycle and reinvent better, more sustainable packaging.
Aquafina has set up four water stations in the sustainability district, allowing visitors to refill their water bottles.
PepsiCo will work closely with Dulsco, the official waste management partner of Expo 2020, at the site to ensure the collection and recycling of waste from PepsiCo products, supporting the Expo's goal of diverting a minimum of 85% of waste from landfill.
