    Supporting the arts is fine but promoting bottled water PLASTIC bottled water in the process is NOT acceptable. We are collectively a society that is already trashing the planet beyond comprehension with plastics that aren’t handled responsibly. Pepsi is breeding/green-washing a new generation of consumers.

    Promoting the arts if fine Pepsi, go ahead and take the tax break for your good works but SHAME, SHAME, SHAME for promoting your bottled water that is contributing to the destruction of the planet.

    We need millions going towards making sure we have clean dependable drinking water coming from our taps. We do NOT need more and more bottled water from Pepsi, Coke, Nestle or anyone else.
