Toronto hosts a huge number of major events each year; in public, at stadiums, at arenas, and concert halls. Sports and event venues are an ideal place to shift to reuse: they’re a closed environment with limited vendors, and all the food and drink are consumed on-site, especially alcoholic drinks which cannot leave the venue. 

A number of events around the world have already chosen to shift to reusables clubs in the UK, major festivals in Belgium, and concerts in Australia and the US are already running events with reusable cups and dishes. 

Governments are encouraging this practice and taking the step to require reusables for events. This list includes: Banff, Netherlands, Berkeley, California, and the Reuse Seattle project in partnership with major stadiums.
