Eliminating single-use plastic from sports events

Eliminating single-use plastic from sports events

 

Monday 3 December, 12:30pm

MCC, Lord’s Cricket Ground

Single-use plastic pollution is one of the most pressing issues facing the environment today. Public awareness and concern of the issue and its impact is at an all-time high, and media interest is substantial. How should sports clubs and venues respond, and what practical action can you take to reduce and eliminate single-use plastic from your events?

BASIS has organised a meeting, with #OneLess and the Marine Conservation Society to bring together operational managers and decision makers from sports venues, clubs and events across the country to address the issue of single-use plastic at sports events. The meeting will be hosted by MCC at Lord’s Cricket Ground.

During the meeting we will explore the barriers and challenges that the sector faces in reducing single-use plastic, present best practice case studies that demonstrate what others have achieved already, and provide guidance on policy, ground safety, operational issues and waste management that will support you in implementing positive changes in your events.
