The VUL is committed to being sustainable in all of our endeavours.
We currently have two initiatives that support sustainability:
Instead of flipping a disc to determine who pulls to start a game, we ask teams to use the Carbon Flip instead. The Carbon Flip encourages teams to use less vehicles to get to games. It's one small way we can promote a reduction in our carbon footprint.
The VUL aims to eliminate waste at all VUL events. This includes:
- Using clearly marked garbage, recycling, and compost bins, complete with colour-coded bags.
- Not providing plastic or paper plates, but asking attendees bring their own reusable ones instead. Discs make great plates!
- Asking players to bring their own utensils and cups, if possible. We may provide some compostable or recyclable ones for some events.
- Buying in bulk whenever possible to reduce amount of garbage produced by packaging.
