We’ve been working to create a portfolio of options that go beyond the bottle, meeting consumers’ individual needs and putting smiles on their faces, no matter whether they’re at home, away from home, or on-the-go. SodaStream Professional TM is the latest addition to our evolving Beyond the Bottle portfolio.

How does SodaStream ProfessionalTM help the environment?

At PepsiCo, we’re striving to build a world where plastics never become waste. SodaStream Professional TM is one way that we’re working to make it convenient and engaging for people to make sustainable choices throughout the day – namely, cutting down on single-use plastic bottles.

What are Bottles Saved? What is the benefit of a reusable bottle?

It’s our view that once people realize the ease and impact of using a refillable bottle, they will be less likely to turn to a single-use plastic bottle. So, with each pour at SodaStream Professional TM, it calculates how many 16 oz plastic bottles you have saved to date, which will appear in the app as a fun way to track your personal environmental impact overtime.

Payment
How much does each pour cost?

PepsiCo will work with our customers to determine appropriate pricing. Pricing may vary by customer and location.

SodaStream Professional TM accepts credit cards and mobile/wallet pay. You’ll be asked to swipe or tap to pay before pouring your drink. In the future, the goal will be to allow users to pay directly through the SodaStream Connect TM app.
