MARYLEBONE CRICKET CLUB (MCC) IS DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE RE:WATER AS THE OFFICIAL WATER SUPPLIER TO THE CLUB AND LORD’S. THE AGREEMENT WILL SEE RE:WATER SIT AT THE HEART OF THE CLUB’S SUSTAINABILITY OBJECTIVES.
Re:Water is the world’s first spring water that comes in a bottle made from 100% recycled aluminium. With eight million tons of plastic dumped in our oceans every year, the drive for more sustainable options provided by companies like Re:Water are vital to society’s drive to be more environmentally conscious.
Bottled at source in Herefordshire, this is the perfect product to refill, reuse, recycle, and the aluminium keeps water cooler and fresher for longer. When finished with the product, the bottle is 100% recyclable (no separation needed) at curb side or home recycling.
Re:Water has established itself as preferred supplier to some of the most recognised sustainability events globally, including the G7 Summit in Cornwall and COP26 in Glasgow in 2021. Re:Water is part of Race to Zero — working to become carbon neutral which aligns with the Club’s own ambitious sustainability targets.
As part of the association, there are also exciting licensing opportunities which will also be pursued to create Lord’s and MCC branded water bottles, providing an exciting and sustainable item to the wider offering to fans visiting the Home of Cricket.
Re:Water will be on sale across the venue ahead of an exciting summer of cricket at Lord’s including men’s and women’s Ashes matches.
Co-Founder, Matt Crocker said: “As a brand focused on sustainability we are thrilled to be partnering with Lord’s to aid their ambitious environmental goals. Their Members and visitors will be able to refill our bottles across the venue to enjoy during matches and on their journey home — eliminating thousands of single use containers every match day.”
MCC Commercial Director, Andy Muggleton, said: “At MCC, we are taking sustainability seriously, and we believe this new and exciting partnership with Re:Water signals our intent.
“WE BELIEVE THAT RE:WATER ALIGNS WITH OUR VALUES AND WILL NOT ONLY REDUCE OVERALL WASTE BUT CONTRIBUTE TOWARDS MCC’S COMMITMENT TO BEING A NET ZERO CARBON CLUB”
“No waste has been sent to landfill from Lord’s since 2010, and no single-use plastic water bottles will now be sold at Lord’s, with Re:Water providing a reusable and sustainable alternative to take advantage of the 30 water refill stations across the Ground.
“Lord’s is the Home of Cricket, and we are responsible for futureproofing for generations to come. We believe that Re:Water aligns with our values and will not only reduce overall waste but contribute towards MCC’s commitment to being a net zero carbon Club.”
