100% of all plastic pint glasses served by Sodexo, a leading global services company, at Goodison Park are now reusable.
The new reusable plastic cups will save an estimated 75,000 single-use plastic cups being used across a season at Everton’s ground.
Designated recycling points have been installed on the concourse for supporters to place their cups when used, before they are washed and returned to be used again.
The cups can be reused up to 100 times.
Jo Wetherill, Sodexo Catering Services Director at Goodison Park, said:
Reducing waste is one of our key priorities so when Everton asked us for a solution to help drive down plastic waste we were more than happy to use our expertise to find an answer.
These reusable cups will make a huge difference to the amount of plastic used at Goodison Park and make our work even greener.
The new cups form part of a wider campaign launched by the club and Everton in the Community aimed at increasing environmental awareness and reducing the clubs carbon footprint.
Alix Craig, Stadium Development and Project Manager, said: “The initiative is a key part of our environmental awareness campaign, ‘Everton for Change’, and it has been great to see the Club and Sodexo team up to launch this scheme. Reusable cups will make a huge difference to the amount of single-use plastic used at Goodison Park and help us achieve our environmental goals.”
