USC Football and Better for All Partner for a Zero Waste Game

05 Sep, 2023, 08:17 ET

The game will kick-off at 7:30 PM PT and will be broadcast live on FOX Sports.

Fans will be able to enjoy pre-game beverages in Better for All reusable, renewable and certified home compostable cups, inside USC’s Ultimate Tailgate located in Trojan Fan Fest located just east of the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Better for All’s lightweight yet durable cups are made from Kaneka Biopolymers Green Planet PHBH, a material made by fermenting plant seed oils. Better for All cups are capable of handling both hot and cold beverages and are non-toxic and compostable, giving fans the opportunity to enjoy the game guilt free.

USC is no stranger to sustainable initiatives. The University was recently named the winner of the Best Fan Engagement sub-category in the Pac-12 Zero Waste Challenge for the 2022 football season. A stunning 91.3% diversion rate was achieved at the Zero Waste Game against Arizona State, and the University is keen to build on this success.

USC is proud to partner with Better for All for this year’s Zero Waste Game. We see this as a unique opportunity to provide a no-waste, game-day experience that resonates with the values of our students, fan base and the USC Trojan community,” says Drew DeHart, Vice President/General Manager, USC Sports Properties and Playfly Sports. “We acknowledge the important role sports venues play in combating waste and climate change, and are proud to use our influence as a platform in the sports community to promote sustainable change.”
