Thought For The Day – Monday 6th February 2023
Green Football Weekend
The first “Green Football Weekend”, at the weekend, saw women’s and men’s football draw attention to climate change and the cutting of carbon footprint.
Various clubs improved on-site recycling, encouraged people not to use plastic bottles, served vegetarian, vegan and plant-based food, encouraged fans not to drive, organized walks and cycles to the ground, planted trees and powered coaches with sustainable fuels and bio-fuels. Wolverhampton Wanderers’ players wore green armbands to raise awareness. Black, Gold and Green. Wycombe Wanderers’ midfielder David Wheeler was announced this week as Sustainability Officer for the Professional Footballers’ Association, the players’ union.
