The Oklahoma City Zoo and Pepsi invite Oklahoma’s students, K-12, to participate in the Pepsi Vending Machine Art Contest for a chance to win wild prizes and have their original art design on a Pepsi vending machine at the Zoo. This year’s contest theme, RECYCLING: Make It Second Nature, encourages students to illustrate creative ideas for promoting recycling and how doing so can help protect and restore our planet’s natural resources.

THEME DETAILS

“RECYCLING: Make It Second Nature”

Mother Nature wants you to rally for recycling! It’s up to all of us to care about our environmental future and, as we celebrate 50 years of Earth Day this year, the OKC Zoo hopes to inspire Oklahoma’s students to become advocates for recycling through art and awareness with the Pepsi Vending Machine Art Contest.

Earth is our home and therefore it deserves our care and protection, and by recycling, you are contributing to the conservation our of our natural world–a plus, for all living things! Recycling helps divert recyclable trash away from landfills, conserve natural resources (trees, water, land, etc.), save energy and create jobs. Recycling also supports healthy habitats for wildlife and wild spaces for you to enjoy. When you recycle at home, school, work or in your community it becomes second nature, creating positive habits that will last a lifetime.
