Active HW takes action to reduce our environmental impact

This Earth Day 2022, we wanted to celebrate and showcase our efforts to become eco-friendlier and more sustainable, to support the fight against climate change.

  1. Responsible Sourcing - Wherever possible we have been sourcing local, eco-friendly or biodegradable products from our suppliers to support our events and everyday activities. Where this is not possible, we seek to reuse and recycle materials.
  2. Reducing Print Waste - We have recently adopted digital-based systems over paper systems and we have further plans to reduce our print waste at upcoming events including the School Games.
  3. Reducing Plastic - We have made small but significant changes to the use of plastic at our events with support from our partners Stride Active. So far we have replaced cable ties with string, replaced silicone wristbands with fabric and moved away from vinyl stickers. We continue to review our use of plastic, seeking a more environmentally-friendly option for single use plastic in lunches and for water provision.

Like many organisations, we endeavour to reduce our environmental impact. If your business, club or organisation has achieved similar outcomes as we have listed above, we would love to hear from you and share ideas, challenges and successes! Get in touch via our 'Contact Us' page.
