Have you ever been to a sport or concert arena and thought, "Why aren't there any places for me to recycle my drink or food containers?" If you have said this to yourself at some point, you're not alone. According to a recent survey by the marketing agency Sheldon Group found that "nearly one-third of Americans would be more likely to attend a sports game or concert if the stadium where the event was held recycled and composted. The same study found that one in five consumers surveyed said they would buy more food and beverages during the event if they knew their food packaging wouldn't end up in a landfill."
