The Oval, England Cricket and Sky partner to make the venue plastic free

The Kia Oval and the England Cricket team have joined forces to reduce the amount of single-use plastic used at the Oval cricket ground during its forthcoming 100th historic Test. Partnering with Sky Ocean Rescue, this is part of Kia Oval's aspiration to becoming a plastic free venue.

england cricket plastic1During the Test there will be 20,000 limited edition refillable water bottles given out and fans will be encouraged to use the 20 free water points installed throughout the venue, in a move to significantly contribute to reducing the amount of single-use plastic consumed across the five days, from the 27th to 31st July.

On-air, the newly-launched Sky Sports Cricket channel will dedicate parts of its Test coverage to highlighting the impact plastic is having on our oceans by showing Sky News reports that tackle the issue, and challenging viewers at home to reduce their use of single-use plastics. Behind the scenes, the Sky Sports Cricket outside broadcasting team will also be plastic bottle free.

Jeremy Darroch, Sky CEO, commented: "The dire health of our oceans is such an important issue, and one that needs to be urgently addressed. At Sky, we want to use our voice and the potential of our reach to inspire people to take action to protect our planet by bringing to life our amazing ocean for millions of people across Europe, and discussing the solutions. This is a great opportunity to drive home the issues with sports fans and underline the actions that can easily be undertaken to reduce our impact on the ocean."

There is an estimated 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the world's oceans, with 8 million tons more ending up in the ocean every year, it never decomposes and will remain there forever. By 2050 all the plastic in the Ocean could weigh more than all the fish. By working with the Kia Oval, Sky Ocean Rescue is able to raise the issues that matter and explore the different ways sports fans can help make a difference.
