Let’s Make the Red, White & Blue a Little Greener

Let’s make the Red, White & Blue a little GREENER...

 

Each year in the Gym, we use around 120,000 disposable plastic and paper cups. Crude oil, natural gas and coal are used in the production of plastics and all are limited natural resources.

 

The Club sends much of its waste for recycling, and in 2012, we recycled over 20,300kg of paper, and 6,100kg of plastic and glass. However, while this can be manufactured into new products, most plastics are not biodegradable and they will remain in the environment for hundreds of years.

 

We would like your help in reducing The Club’s environmental footprint by supporting the removal of plastic and paper cups from the Gym as of Tuesday, October 1.

 

From this date instead of using the disposable cups, please bring a reusable bottle for your workouts. Not only will this help the environment but it will encourage you to drink more water as you train. A great outcome all round!
