PepsiCo Latin America has been working for the last decade to foster inclusive recycling in the region as part of its’ goal for plastics to never become waste. For instance, the company launched “Recycling with Purpose,” a circular economy model for Latin America based on consumer involvement and education. Today, Peru becomes the first country to implement the program. Through a partnership with ecoins — an initiative founded in Costa Rica that aims to increase the collection of PET materials in exchange for ecoins, a virtual currency — consumers in Peru can now earn discounts on a variety of products and services, in exchange for the collection of recyclable materials, including PET. The ecoins partnership aims to reach 1 million people with recycling awareness in its first year of operation across the region.The second component of the platform is including grassroots recyclers as an integral part of the circular economy model (similar to what The Body Shop is now doing in India). In this regard, PepsiCo Latin America has a long-standing partnership with the nonprofit Ciudad Saludable, a catalyst of the recycling ecosystem in Peru. Today, The PepsiCo Foundation is announcing a $2 million USD grant to Ciudad Saludable, to support the inclusion of 1,000 grassroots recyclers in recycling collection routes across eight countries (Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Guatemala, Jamaica, Mexico and Peru). The program will indirectly benefit 800,000 people at the community level with improved recycling services, and aims to collect 6,000 tons of recyclable materials.
