Staying Green at Sporting Events & Concerts

The re-emergence of sporting events and concerts is thrilling for many. Because of limitations due to COVID-19, many have missed the social interaction and sense of coming together these events provide. Concerts and sporting events are expected to have record-breaking attendance in the second half of 2021, as ticket providers like Ticketmaster are expecting ticket sales to match and potentially exceed sales in 2019.

However, with people coming together, waste is inevitable. From leaving cups in stadium seats to unwrapping concessions, many fans leave their mark in the wrong way. With that in mind, here are a few tips on being eco-friendly at concerts and sporting events:

  •    • Utilize carpools and public transportation
  •    • Only take the free swag that you will use again
  •    • Use a mobile ticket instead of printing
  •    • Utilize recycle and compost bins throughout the venue
  •    • Minimize usage of single-use plastics and disposable materials
  •    • Support local and organic food vendors where available
