Watford FC is pleased to announce we will no longer distribute disposable plastic pint cups at Vicarage Road Stadium, starting with this weekend’s match against Chelsea (Sat Nov 2, 5.30pm KO).
Reusable plastic pint cups will replace the single-use cups, as part of a wider initiative to reduce single-use plastic waste at the club.
Please do your bit and return the cups to the new bins provided throughout the stadium, where they can be washed and reused.
We have been working with Sky Ocean Rescue and the Premier League to move towards an environmentally friendly future, after it was shockingly predicted by the Ellen MacArthur Foundation that by 2050 the weight of plastic in the ocean will be greater than the weight of fish.
In fact, even the signs advertising the new bins are Green Certified, meaning they are PVC free and made with solvent free adhesive.
Let's reduce plastic waste together.
