Pieta is committed to fostering positive environmental, social, and economic impacts for current and future generations. We took the first steps to make Darkness Into Light a sustainable event, with environmentally friendly packaging and recycled paper being used for our t-shirt dispatch and a reduction in the amount of event paraphernalia.
We have replaced any remaining plastic items with reusable or recyclable alternatives, and t-shirts that are delivered by post, were sent in a fully compostable mailer bag, which can be added to your normal household compost or compost bin.
To further reduce waste; we kept the same t-shirt design year-on-year and have encouraged participants not to receive a new t-shirt at registration. This has seen a huge reduction, in the region of 30% on the order of t-shirts.
Instead, as an incentive to reuse t-shirts from previous years, we offer a discount on all our Darkness Into Light branded merchandise; more funds will go towards our vital services by opting out for a t-shirt. We also encourage participants to bring their own water in reusable bottles to our events.
We have ensured that the signage produced for our Darkness into Light events is re-usable, thus reducing waste and reducing printing expenses which funnels more funds to our services.
