Premier League 'committed' to reducing plastic use as Friends of the Earth urge clubs to do more | Football News |

The Premier League insists its clubs are “committed” to reducing single-use plastics at stadiums – but environmental group Friends of the Earth is urging them to do more.

Alongside BASIS (the British Association for Sustainable Sport), the environmental group is calling on clubs to introduce a returnable cup scheme in their stadiums as part of a comprehensive set of measures.

FOTE estimates that around six million single-use plastic beer cups may have been used in the Premier League last season alone, while successful re-usable cup schemes have been operating in cricket and rugby venues.
