Pepsi's Dream Machines Are Helping Veterans Learn To Become Entrepreneurs

Pepsi has places hundreds of recycling kiosks all over the US. They are for recycling bottles and aluminum cans. Pepsi is calling these kiosks the Dream Machines. Dream Machine kiosks are computerized receptacles that include a personal reward system that allows consumers to collect and redeem points for each bottle or can they recycle in the kiosk. Pepsi is challenging Americans to recycle more and give back.
The Dream Machines are located in high traffic locations such as Rita Aids so that more people will see them and be more likely to use them.

The money made from recycling the bottles and cans is for Pepsi to provide Entrepreneurship Bootcamp for Veterans with Disabilities (EBV), a national program offering free, experiential training in entrepreneurship and small business management to post-9/11 veterans with disabilities. This is freaking awesome. I'm all about recycling but now I'm gonna find a Dream Machine close to me (if there is one) so that I can start recycling there. Our country needs more entrepreneurs. Happy Recycling!
