Tempe Arizona Sun Devil Stadium for Arizona State University football

Waterless Co. Inc., manufacturers of no-water urinals and other restroom products, is demonstrating their support for the Green Sports Alliance by sponsoring the Alliance's next major symposium.

This will be the ASU Sports & Sustainability Symposium, to be held on Thursday, January 17th, 2019, at Arizona State University's Sun Devil Stadium.

Among those attending will be regional and national sports professionals, collegiate sports teams, as well as the owners and managers of sports stadiums throughout the U.S.

The goal of the event, according to the Green Sports Alliance, is to explore ways that businesses, public leaders, sports venues, and athletes can work together to advance healthier more sustainable communities throughout the country.

"This year one of the highlights of the program will be its focus on ways the sports industry can use water more efficiently," says Klaus Reichardt, President and CEO of Waterless Co. "As a supporting member of the Green Sports Alliance we want to be part of their growing emphasis on water-related issues for stadiums and sports facilities."

Most mid- to large-sized sports venues use millions of gallons of water each year, mainly for landscaping, in restrooms, for cleaning, and food preparation. Further, some sporting events use even more water.

For instance, according to the New York Times, teams that are part of the National Hockey League have historically used more than 300 million gallons of water each season.

"Fortunately, with new water eliminating, reducing, and recycling technologies, these numbers are coming down significantly," says Reichardt. "We this happening all over the country today."

The Green Sports Alliance is one of the most important leaders in the green and sustainability movement in the US, helping promote green and sustainability values. I encourage more organizations to get on board and support this organization."
