Double Blues Go Green

HIGH with logo sturt_double_blues_go_green_logo_CMYK

The Club through its Double Blues Go Green initiative aims to minimise landfill, reduce carbon emissions and improve our environment.

We continue to develop the Club in a sustainable capacity and will work closely with suppliers, vendors, partners and the community regarding the on and off field operations of the Club.

We aim to encourage our supporters to engage with and commit themselves to the Club’s environmental, sustainability goals.

  • Glass and drink containers are collected/sorted separately for recycling following match days by the Third Goodwood Scouts
  • Our canteen uses compostable cutlery and food containers and does not use plastic straws
  • Match day vendors must agree to aim to achieve the highest level of sustainable practices to help reduce the environmental impact
  • We recycle all possible materials, such as paper, cardboard, printer cartridges, batteries plastics, glass, metal etc

Sturt is the first football Club in Australia to be designated plastic free precinct.

Reduce single-use plastic

Outside of the Club we urge our supporters to:

  • Utilise reusable drinking bottles and coffee cups
  • Say no to the supply of plastic straws and disposable cutlery
  • Avoid excessive food packaging
  • Use tote bags instead of plastic bags

Ride a bike, walk or take public transport

We all have a responsibility to reduce our carbon footprint and as a sporting Club we are pro-bike. It’s cheaper, healthier and—most of all—environmentally friendly. You can lock your bike to the perimeter fence on match day. (just don’t leave them there because we take the fence down after games).

Public transport is another great way to travel to Unley Oval and cut down on emissions. With only a short walk to Unley Oval Adelaide Metro‘s bus network stops on Unley Road and Duthy Street.

Show us how you contribute to a sustainable Sturt.

Use the hashtag #DoubleBluesGoGreen on social media to nab bragging rights for your sustainable habits like the use of keep cups, reusable wine glasses, tote bags etc.

As part of the Club’s Double Blues Go Green initiative recognised recently when designated the first football club in Australia to be designated a plastic free precinct, the Club has partnered with Greener Events Pty Ltd to launch STACK-CUPTM on Saturday 19 September at the Sturt v North Adelaide game to be held at Peter Motley Oval.

STACK-CUPTM are a reusable, washable cup solution. The signature feature of the cup is a stackable handle so the user can carry multiple drinks in one hand.

A STACK-CUPTM pop up bar will be positioned at the northern goal end of Unley Oval where patrons will be able to purchase tap beer & wine. A $2.00 deposit is required per STACK-CUPTM. Patrons can either keep the cup or return and receive back their deposit.

Despite the Club transitioning to compostable take away containers, the reusable STACK-CUPTM will reduce match day waste whilst providing a great user experience.

We encourage you to bring along a deck chair to the game to comply with SA Government regulation requiring patrons to be seated while consuming alcohol.
