Tokyo 2020 Olympic Podiums To Be Made From Recycled Plastic

Tuesday, 11 June 2019

Podiums at the Tokyo 2020 Olympics will be made from plastic waste donated by local residents or collected from the sea, organisers said Tuesday, as part of a sustainability push.It will be the first time podiums have been made from recycled materials and organisers say they will need about 45 tonnes of plastic to fashion around 100 podiums for the Games.

 

 

Tokyo 2020 CEO Toshiro Muto said the plan would help push a message of sustainability, which organisers want to be a key theme of the Games next year."By sending that message to both Japan and the rest of the world, we think this project will have great significance," he told reporters.
