Tenerife Island is ready to host the stars of world women tennis. From Saturday 16th to Sunday 24th October the Tenerife Ladies Open, a WTA 250 tournament organized by MEF Tennis Events, will take place in the Abama Tennis Academy.
The prestigious event on the fast courts of the Spanish academy can count on the participation of some of the best champions on tour, especially the Ukrainian Elina Svitolina, the current world n.7. A tournament that will be based on the respect of the environment.
In fact the athletes will receive, in addition to the welcome kit provided by the organization, the steel bottles agüita, in order to eliminate the excessive use of plastics. “Por un paraíso sin plástico” (for a paradise without plastics) in fact, is the slogan of the company which is a partner of the Tenerife Ladies Open.
“Every minute a million of water bottles are sold worldwide – as it is explained in the official agüita’s website –. Less than half of that amount is recycled, and just 7% is used to produce new bottles. Do you know where the majority of all bottles ends up? In our oceans. For the total amount of 15 millions tons of rubbish that ends up in the ocean every year, around 75% is plastics”.
And looking at the future, the framework is not positive at all: “Plastics productions should quadruplicate by 2050. It’s shocking. Luckily there are small things that we can do in order to avoid this scenario. That’s what we call the 3Rs”.
Just three simple and effective concepts: “Reduce. Tap water is safe to drink here in the Canary Islands, since it respects all the standards established from the European Union. So the easiest and cheapest option is just drinking tap water. Reuse. Agüita’s bottles are made up of 18/8 stainless steel and they are the best way to carry food and drinks. Last but not least: Recycle. These are high quality bottles and they are made to last ages, therefore your agüita bottle will be by your side for a very long time”.
From 10am of Saturday 16th October, the bottles will be available for the tournament spectators in the welcome area of the Tenerife Ladies Open. The best of tennis is coming to Tenerife. And it’s respecting the environment.
