Brentford fans have a chance to join in with a new campaign linking football and the chance to help the environment. ‘Football, Rebooted’ is a national environmental campaign that has been created to save at least one million pairs of football boots from landfill, by getting them onto the feet of players right across the UK. The innovative campaign has been co-created by former international football star David James MBE, grassroots football communities, and Brentford FC principal partner Utilita Energy - the UK’s only energy company created to help households use less energy, to save the planet - and our pockets.
Every time a pair of football boots or trainers is made, around 30 lbs of carbon is generated, having a detrimental impact on the environment. Football, Rebooted aims to rehome one million pairs of ‘pre-played’ football boots and AstroTurf trainers, saving families a fortune, as well as 136,000 tonnes of carbon. See more here or below.
