The Open for the first time with a sustainable collection
For the first time, The Open now has a Sustainable Collection that consists exclusively of sustainable products. As the organizer of the only major tournament in Europe, the R&A is thus continuing to pursue its strategy of making the major event as sustainable as possible.
In addition to the classic metal drinking bottle, which can be filled up at numerous drinking stations on site, a whole range of shirts, sweaters and trousers made at least in part from recycled plastic are in the range for the first time. However, a look at the manufacturers also makes it clear that the sustainable production of golf fashion is still a rather exotic matter. The only brands available in the Sustainable Collection are adidas and Boss .
This year’s Open Championship will be held on St Andrews’ Old Course. Because of the 150 For the anniversary edition, tickets for the weekend have been sold out for a long time.
