Looking for Tips on Attending a Baseball Game
June 7, 2018 - 7:24 am

I was wondering if anyone had advice for going to a baseball game while reducing plastic waste. My concern is largely regarding buying beers in the stadium which in my experience is typically served in plastic cups. I believe that most stadiums (Miller Park) will let you bring in sealed plastic bottles of water, soda, juice but am not clear if they would let me bring in a reusable plastic cup (glass and cans are forbidden) which I could ask them to use instead.

Does anyone have advice on how to reduce waste when going to a stadium, besides the obvious do not purchase anything comment? Thanks!

That’s a tough one.  My suggestion would be to try bringing in a reusable plastic cup and see if they will fill it.  It depends on the stadium.  And it might even depend on the particular vendor within that stadium!  If one tells you no, try another one and see if they’ll do it.  :-)

We always take an empty reusable water bottle and fill it with water from the drinking fountain.  They won’t let you bring in an unsealed bottle filled with water but they will let you bring in an empty one – so I assume a plastic reusable glass as well.  I agree with Beth.  You can probably find a vendor who will fill your beer directly into the plastic glass if you look around.  Probably not glass though.
