Social Handles & Hashtags
You may have already noticed that our welcome letter was paperless this year – this is part of our continued efforts to progress our sustainability actions across the tournament.
Our sustainability actions don’t stop here though – and you can get involved too!
- In line with Scotland’s new Single Use Plastics legislation, no plastic cutlery will be used with all cutleries to be metal. Glass water bottles are provided to reduce single use plastic water bottles, there is also canned water and access to filtered water tap nearby for refillable water bottles, which will be provided by Luqel.
- IMG and the R&A are putting on shuttle buses to transport players to AIG Women’s Open, so they therefore will be reducing the amount of air journeys, while public transport for spectators and cycling is encouraged through social media.
- The Player’s Lounge catering this week is provided by Hickory, a local supplier specialising in locally sourced food which not only supports local businesses but also reduces transport and associated carbon emissions. Plus, all tea, coffee, sugar, hot chocolate and bananas are Fairtrade products.
- The host venue, Dundonald Links, first became GEO Certified in 2013 and has successfully renewed three times since then, while they have also been recognised for sustainability through Golf Tourism Scotland, Ayrshire Business Awards, BIGGA, IAGTO and through the Golf Environment Awards.
- There is a reduction in printed materials by offering draw sheets, tournament programme and key information via QR code.
- The tournament’s official clothing supplier, Reflo, a sustainable golfwear brand, is providing event uniforms for all tournament officials, volunteers, VIP sponsors and Pro-am guests. Reflo’s apparel is made from advanced technical fabrics produced from recycled single-use plastic and coffee beans, one of Reflo’s hoodies contains the equivalent of 37 recycled plastic bottles. Working towards Reflo’s aim of recycling five million plastic bottles and planting one million trees by 2026, the partnership will see the equivalent of 25,852 plastic bottles recycled.
You can help too! Along with your support of the above iniatives – Reflo has committed to plant a tree for every birdie or better scored in the tournament, which could see 1,650 trees planted in areas around the world that have been devasted by deforestation.
We’d love to see everyone post about their sustainable actions this week – please use the hashtag #TGWSOOnTheGreen so we can share!
