Football Rebooted

Save Today, Play Tomorrow has partnered with Football Rebooted to help them achieve their ambitious target of saving one million pairs of football boots from landfill, and redistributing them through a network of boot collection points located at grassroots football clubs.

Football Rebooted is football’s biggest ever environmental movement with a mission

to save at least one million pairs of football boots from landfill, by getting them back

onto the feet of players right across the UK.

The simple, but innovative campaign has been co-created by former international football star David James MBE, grassroots football communities, and Utilita Energy - the UK’s only energy company created to help households use less energy to save the pocket, and the planet.

 

Every time a pair of football boots or trainers is made, about 30lbs of carbon is generated. In the Birmingham County FA region there are upwards of 100,000 registered players, so it is easy to see how this is having a detrimental impact on the environment.

Football Rebooted aims to rehome one million pairs of ‘pre-played’ football boots and AstroTurf trainers, saving families money in the process, as well as 136,000 tonnes of carbon – the same as taking 7,000 cars off the road for a year[ii] or turning the energy off in one million medium-sized houses for a week.

Birmingham County FA Case Study:

 

Birmingham County FA joined forces with Football Rebooted to help them surpass this target, but to do this we need your help.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We would like to place across the County easily accessible "Boot Bins" at grassroots football clubs where pre-owned or unwanted boots can be donated. If your club would like to offer this facility then please complete the "Expression of Interest Form" here.
