The recent voting rights bill that passed in Georgia passed almost unnoticed to the public. Big companies knew about the controversial bill but waited for a public response to comment. Pepsi wants to step in and help inform the public of important events by printing them on the sides of cans using the same printing methods for expiration dates, along with a QR code that goes to the direct source of the information, such as new laws and court decisions. The idea is to inform and promote independent thought and research.
