BASIS (the British Association for Sustainable Sport), #OneLess and the Marine Conservation Society are organising a meeting, hosted by Marylebone Cricket Club at Lord’s Cricket Ground on Monday 3 December 2018 from 12:30pm, to address the issue of single-use plastic at sports events. The meeting will bring together operational managers and senior decision makers from sports venues, clubs and events across the country.
Single-use plastic pollution is one of the most pressing issues facing the ocean today. Public awareness and concern of the issue and its impact is at an all-time high, media interest is substantial, and many organisations are reviewing their use of single-use plastic to avoid reputational damage.
How should sports clubs and venues respond, and what practical action can they take to reduce and eliminate single-use plastic from their events?
