Our Community Compost and Coffee Morning was held on Sunday 30 June where locals could take home their own complimentary bag of compost plus enjoy coffee and treats from local suppliers – as well as being one of the first to taste Eden Park’s very own honey!
As the country’s largest stadium, we’re committed to exploring ways in which we can reduce our impact on the environment. Solely compostable packaging can now be found in all corporate hospitality areas and corporate suites throughout the stadium which includes Eden Park’s custom-made compostable water bottle.
This year two large compost boxes were installed at the stadium to process compostable waste from non-match days and additionally collect the food waste from seven local cafes and restaurants. One bin alone can hold the weekly food waste from a minimum of 120 households and can reach 80°C to compost certified packaging. Moving forward, the compost will continue to be free of charge to our neighbours to ensure the community benefits from Eden Park’s sustainability mission.
The sweetest product to eventuate out of the stadium’s commitment to sustainability is Eden Park Honey. Last year more than 120,000 bees called the stadium home to help the Park play its role in preserving our planet and minimising effects.
