The Company Contrast – PepsiCo

Each week 2ndVote takes a look at a popular company that scores poorly on the 2ndVote scoring system and then provides some better alternatives for you to easily align your shopping dollars with your values. This series is called The Company Contrast, and the company we will be focusing on this week is PepsiCo (1.1-lean liberal).

Pepsico is a leading global food and beverage company with multiple brands, including Frito-Lay, Gatorade, Quaker, and more. Even though PepsiCo sells popular foods and drinks, purchasing their products undermines your values based on their continuous support of the leftist agenda.

PepsiCo scores a 1.1 on 2ndVote’s scoring system because of its contribution to the National Urban League which supports sanctuary cities and opposes “Stand Your Ground” laws. PepsiCo also contributes to different organizations that support same-sex marriage. To see all the reasons PepsiCo scores so poorly, you can click on their company page here.

Fortunately, when you want to go grocery shopping but don’t want to sacrifice your conservative views, there are better alternatives out there. Dr.Pepper and Snapple are great alternatives to purchase without sacrificing your values. The products’ neutral stance on issues and commitment to its customers is why 2ndVote has deemed them better alternatives to PepsiCo.
