Kansas City Current Announces Bold Reuse as Next Partner in CPKC Stadium

Kansas City Current News Release


KANSAS CITY - The Kansas City Current is proud to announce an innovative partnership with Bold Reuse, bringing reusable drinkware to CPKC Stadium at Berkley Riverfront Park.

This partnership represents the first implementation of reusables at a major venue within Kansas City, as well as the first enactment in a newly launched stadium, establishing a new benchmark for sustainability in modern venues.

The initiative aligns with the club's commitment to environmental stewardship and enhances the overall matchday experience. All poured and fountain drinks across the stadium will be served in a reusable cup. Guests are asked to return those cups to a cup return bin where they will be inspected for quality, sanitized, and repacked by Bold Reuse for future games.

Fans can help CPKC Stadium and the Kansas City Current achieve zero waste by returning reusable cups, recycling aluminum bottles and cans and placing everything else in the compost collection bins. All drinkware across CPKC Stadium will be reusable or recyclable. No single-use plastic bottles or cups will be served in CPKC Stadium, including water which will be available in aluminum cans. All aluminum from beer, alcohol and water cans will have dedicated return bins for recycling.

"Each year, the 400+ stadiums across the United States will dispose of 2.16 billion single use plastic cups. We are thrilled that none of them will come from CPKC Stadium." said Scott Jenkins, VP of Facility Development of the Kansas City Current. "This partnership reflects our dedication to sustainability and represents a significant step forward in reducing single-use waste in sports venues."

In comparison to recycling and compostable packaging, reusable packaging proves to be the most sustainable option environmentally, economically, and socially. Based on research by Upstream Solutions - implementing reusable packaging beats single-use across the board concerning water, land, and energy use, carbon emissions, and more.

"Our team is thrilled to partner with the KC Current and the Riverfront Collective in our joint vision to end single-use waste. Their team has been incredibly bold with their efforts to make a truly zero waste stadium from the opening day" said CRO and Co-Founder of Bold Reuse, Heather Watkins. "We can't wait to see the impact along with them, and see the reusable movement grow within the region."
