2017 NRL Telstra premiership grand final to test using reusable cups - becoming the first sports code and stadium in Australia to ditch single use plastic.
Sydney, Australia – The NRL has announced that they will trial the sale of reusable cups with Globelet for the 2017 NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final at ANZ Stadium on October 1st, 2017.
NRL branded cups will be introduced at two of the bars as a reusable cup system to help eliminate single use plastic cups. This will be the first NRL and major sporting events in Australasia to make a move towards ending single use plastic at stadiums and sports games in Australia.
Sports games are known for consuming large amounts of disposable cups. The NRL and Globelet expects this partnership to improve the event, reduce its waste and improve cleanliness on site.
Globelet’s hope is for all NRL games and major sporting events in Australia to open up to the idea of eliminating single use plastic, and offering a waste free, and more enjoyable drinking option.
