Everton for Change is a campaign to raise environmental awareness and explore new ways to make a positive impact on the planet.
Everton for Change has seen the Club and Everton in the Community renew their commitment to reducing their carbon footprint, while introducing a number of new initiatives across all sites.
The campaign was launched after both Liverpool City Council and Liverpool City Region Combined authority declared a climate emergency, with the Council setting the aim of becoming a zero-carbon local authority by 2030.
One of the Club’s first ‘Everton for Change’ initiatives, in partnership with official catering partner Sodexo, saw the introduction of reusable cups in place of single-use plastic cups at Goodison Park. At Goodison Park, Sodexo have also changed all plastic cutlery to wood, and swapped plastic straws to paper.
The ‘Everton for Change’ branding – and the tagline ‘protecting our planet’ – is also visible at Goodison on LED perimeter boards, the big screens and across other parts of the stadium at all matchdays to raise wider awareness of the campaign.
In July 2020, we were proud to announce that all of our 2020/21 playing and retail kits (home, away and third) from new technical partner hummel would adopt hummel’s innovative ZEROH2O technology.
This ground-breaking technology ensures there is zero water consumption and zero wastewater during the dying process, and a 50% reduction in energy consumption. This means that the 25 litres of fresh clean water normally required to dye just one single shirt is saved for each jersey produced.
Each kit also features the ZEROH2O logo, raising awareness of the environmentally-friendly production method.
This supports a range of environmental action in place across the Club, including recycling initiatives across sites.
