Sodexo, Arizona State University Sun Devil Athletics, and The Coca-Cola Company Partner to Prioritize Sustainability This Football Season

Phoenix, AZ., October 8, 2021 – Sodexo, a leader in food services and facilities management, announced today the company’s partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) Sun Devil Athletics and The Coca-Cola Company to reward football fans who actively recycle during ASU home football games in October and November. The engagement activity will occur at the Sun Devil’s football stadium on October 8, October 30, November 6, and November 27 and be led by Coke Campus Ambassadors, student volunteers, and ASU’s Sustainability team members.  
We’re proud to reward ASU football fans for good stewardship which includes recycling and working to keep a cleaner, more sustainable environment, said Don Young, General Manager, Sodexo. By celebrating those who choose to recycle on game days we hope to prioritize environmental consciousness all day, everyday and back Sodexo’s larger commitment to a better tomorrow.

Those who are ‘caught’ actively recycling during home games will receive Visa gift cards for concessions, t-shirts, or koozies. Additionally, students and fans who post about recycling using #GreeningASU and #GetCaughtGreenHandedSweepstakes on Instagram and Twitter have a chance to win a pair of game day tickets.  
We’re proud to partner with Sodexo and Coca-Cola to keep game days green, said Sun Devil Vice President of Athletics Ray Anderson. Since we view every day as an opportunity to get better, we’re urging Sun Devil fans to take the memories but recycle the plastic bottles.
