Sustainable packaging: A decade in review
Tokyo’s sustainable games
The Tokyo 2020 Olympics are around the corner and they are committed to sustainablity. Tokyo 2020 set the sustainability concept of the Games as “Be better, together – For the planet and the people”. Here are some key sustainability projects Tokyo 2020 are producing for the upcoming Olympic and Paralympic Games:
Every medal that will be awarded to athletes during Tokyo 2020 has been made entirely from recycled metals.
Podiums made from used consumer product packaging.
Venues will make effective use of water resources using rainwater and recycled water.
