Bristol Rovers F.C

Bristol Rovers F.C is working towards cutting plastic waste from the Memorial Stadium ahead of the start of the 2018/19 campaign.

In what is believed to be a first in the EFL, Bristol Rovers is targeting being totally free of single-use plastic before the upcoming campaign gets under way in August and has set out a strategic plan to incorporate a diverse range of biodegradable alternatives for supporters to use on a match day.

Recent media attention surrounding the consequences of single-use plastics to the wider environment has brought the subject to the forefront of public debate, with a number of corporations and businesses aiming to reduce the amount of plastic waste they use – with football clubs, in particular, asked to evaluate their plastic consumption.

In order to meet our plastic-free target, Rovers has teamed up with Sydna Distribution Limited, who specialise in supplying biodegradable and compostable catering disposables – which will be installed at the various kiosks and eateries around the Mem.

The items supplied by SYDNA will be PLA manufactured, which is a bioplastic and is capable of breaking down in a matter of weeks once it arrives at landfill. Both the cups and burger trays that supporters will see around the ground on a match day will be 100% compostable.
