Wimbledon Cutting Back On Plastic

WIMBLEDON TO RAMP UP ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY OPTIONS AT TOURNAMENT

(CNN) – Wimbledon is getting more environmentally friendly at tennis events.

The tournament said all water bottles given out at the event will be 100% recycled plastic.

Attendees can also bring their own reusable bottle or use water fountains.

Wimbledon is the largest single annual sports catering operation in Europe.

Last year alone, almost 475,000 people attended.

To help enforce the new eco-friendly changes, Wimbledon says employees will make sure proper items are recycled.

The Wimbledon tournament runs from July 1st to 14th.
