Liverpool Football Club and SC Johnson Take on Plastic Waste


Last year SC Johnson and Liverpool Football Club formed an official partnership to tackle plastic waste. Along with raising awareness around recycling and plastic waste pollution, SC Johnson is the Official Cleaning and Disinfectant Partner of Liverpool Football Club. SC Johnson will provide soaps and hand sanitizers, courtesy of SC Johnson Professional, for Anfield fans and the AXA training center to promote health and hygiene.

Anyone can participate in the challenge! LFC and SC Johnson are asking people to swap out single use plastic bottles for a reusable bottle for the entire month of April. Let’s all do our part to protect our environment from plastic waste.

Beyond reducing plastic waste at the stadium, SC Johnson is also teaming up with LFC to kick off a new partnership called Goals for Change. This partnership will focus on health and hygiene and creating pathways to greater economic and social opportunity for underserved youth in the U.K., Latin America and Asia.

LFC has made a number of commitments to sustainability through their award winning “Reds Going Green” program. As part of this program, all of LFC’s staff are committed to
reducing, recycling or reusing waste. LFC also recycles over 55% of their waste and regularly reviews what improvements can be made on match and non-match days. Additionally, as Anfield expands LFC is ensuring that the new design includes a number of sustainability measures. These include the provision of PV (solar) panels on the roof of the Stand. LFC will also manage water usage through water drainage and reduce CO² emissions by installing low energy lighting.

As part of the partnership SCJ will help to recycle more than 500,000 plastic bottles used at Anfield each season and turn that plastic into new Mr. Muscle bottles. This partnership makes LFC the first U.K. professional sports team to link a waste-stream to a specific product.
