Earlier this month, SOS Kit Aid received the good news that they have reached the final line up in the Global Good Awards 2021, in the Waste Reduction and Minimalisation category. They are up against strong contenders with DPD, Redrow and Ian Snow.
The Global Good Awards were set up back in 2015 and aim to recognise and reward change across all aspects of purpose driven sustainability and social impact. It is an independent, all-inclusive awards programme, with entries coming in from across the world.
The Waste Reduction and Minimalisation section is a recently introduced category, and rewards organisations that have shown innovation and creativity in reducing and minimalizing waste across all areas of their activities.
John Broadfoot, SOS Kit Aid said “It’s great to be recognised in this way. Our charity is now in its 20th year, and in that time we have donated over £6m worth of kit to disadvantaged young people.” John went on to say, “By recycling sports kit, not only are we protecting waste in our landfill sites, but we are giving a new lease of life to the kit and providing valuable resource to young people and communities around the world.”
The winners will be announced during a Virtual Awards Ceremony, which will take place on 22nd September – so watch this space!
