Where is Pepsi?

Live_For_Now__Destroying_Tomorrow_sm.jpgHere are some examples of Pepsi-sponsored events and Pepsi venues to target this summer, but make sure you find out what's happening near you with a simple internet search! As activists on the ground crash PepsiCo events around the country, online activists will amplify their voices across the world using social media to disrupt PepsiCo’s marketing efforts and drive home the point that thousands of us stand together in our call for an end to Conflict Palm Oil.

Don't forget, if there isn't a Pepsi-sponsored event or venue near you, no prob. You can do your action practically anywhere with a Pepsi logo: a Pepsi vending machine, billboard, bottling facility, or grocery store shelf stocked with PepsiCo goodies, such as Lay’s Chips or Quaker chewy granola bars, that has Pepsi signage close to home.

PepsiCo is pushing its #LiveForNow propaganda out through it’s “Real Big Summer” marketing campaign which includes Pepsi sponsored concerts and events across the US. We need YOU to crash Pepsi-sponsored events and deliver the message that #LiveForNow shouldn’t mean rainforest destruction, climate change and human rights abuses.
