Petrochemical producer Braskem is partnering with Philadelphia Union to promote recycling and conscientious consumerism among the team’s fans, according to a release from webwire.com.
In the recycling program, all cups and caps sold at Talen Energy Stadium in Chester, will be made exclusively from polypropylene, which facilitates the separation of materials.
The program will install waste collection stations with information on the material’s recycling process and create a rewards program for fans and employees.
Braskem and Philadelphia Union will organize an educational project focusing on STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and the intersection of these fields of knowledge at 10 public schools in Delaware and Gloucester counties. Students will receive information on sustainability, conscientious consumerism and recycling, as well as incentives for sports and health.
Last year, Braskem joined forces with the NFL team Philadelphia Eagles to create a recycling and education program that uses an online platform to support 30 public schools in STEM subjects. Since then, the initiative already has collected over 300,000 bottle caps at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia.
The partnership garnered the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) first -ever Sustainability Leadership Award in “Environmental Protection & Circularity.”
