A pint or two with your mates before or after a game is symbolic of a Saturday afternoon, so why can’t we make it better for the environment too?
Next time you’re going to the pub, ask what local drinks they have and try that out instead!
What difference does it make?
Locally brewed beer emits three times less carbon dioxide than a bottled, foreign beer and supports the local community on an economic level as well!
This activity lowers your carbon footprint by:

What do you need?
- A group of friends or colleagues
- a pub with local beers on tap
Step by step
You’ve had to wait a year and a half to go and have a pint properly in a pub, so agree a date and time with a group of friends or colleagues, firstly.
Check which locals serve the own brewed beer on tap, and head there.
Get a round in – minimum of five! Enjoy the evening and drink responsibly, although if someone isn’t drinking or they’re driving – they’ll have the best footprint of anyone, so long as their water or soft drink came from the tap.
Gin has a good footprint if you fancy something else!
Tap water ideally, or a soft drink from the tap. Avoid fresh juices or any bottled drinks if you can.
