Pieta is committed to fostering positive environmental, social, and economic impacts for current and future generations. In 2019, 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.

In 2020, we 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. We will continue this for 2023 and beyond.  

To further reduce waste; in 2021, we encouraged participants not to receive a new t-shirt at registration, which saw a huge reduction of 30% on the order of t-shirts.

For 2023, as an incentive to reuse t-shirts from previous years, we are offering a 10% discount on all our Darkness Into Light branded merchandise; more funds will go towards our vital services by opting out for a t-shirt. For 2023, we also encourage participants to bring their own water in reusable bottles.
