UK Premier League clubs reducing single-use plastic across club operations

Tottenham, Liverpool, and Manchester City are among Premium League clubs in the UK that have began to reduce the use of non-recyclable items significantly.

Tottenham are leading the way with the project and have vowed to phase out the use of plastic straws, stirrers, cutlery and all plastic disposable packaging, instead replacing them with paper and wood alternatives when they move to their new stadium at White Hart Lane.

Liverpool have began phasing single-use plastic out of everyday use, while Manchester City will host a conference with all 20 Premier League clubs on how they can improve the situation.

The size of the problem with non-recyclable waste is clear to see at Wembley Stadium alone. Over 40,000 pints are pulled on average during every half-time interval at the venue, resulting in a whopping 181 kilograms of single-use plastic being utilised. More at The Mirror.
