We are Green Lane Playing Fields

The steps we have taken so far...

As part of our Landscape and Ecology Management Plan we ensure we maintain grassland, trees and hedgerows at Green Lane Playing Fields. We maintain reptile refuges, bird boxes and bat boxes. We also control our light levels to protect our bats, making sure they are not disturbed from foraging and commuting.

We work with Grist Environmental. Grist offer us a resourceful waste management and recycling service. With new technologies and expert industry knowledge Grist commits to a ‘Zero to Landfill’ policy on all waste and recyclable material they collect.

We work with Nanogreen Sustainable Cleaning. Nanogreen use 100% environmentally friendly and sustainable cleaning products without harsh chemicals and in 100% recyclable packaging.

We stock iPRO Hydrate in 100% recyclable packaging, using recycled materials. With a commitment to long-term sustainability, iPRO aim to have no new plastic created and no used plastic wasted, iPRO are working to keep plastic bottles in a closed-loop recycling system.

We work with Tickbox Promo to promote sustainable and environmentally beneficial promotional product solutions.

Our partners, Fish Brothers Ltd, support us with an electric pool car to reduce our emissions when travelling. Fish Brothers also offer us expert advice about e-vehicles and charging points.

We work with Corsham Print to offset our printing.

We work with Replay Maintenance. Replay are experts in synthetic surfaces and are able to advise on planning to minimise the environmental impact and reduce microplastic pollution.

With the support of Devizes Town Council and the Greening Devizes initiative, we have 60 saplings arriving in November 22 for the 'Plant a Tree for the Jubilee' campaign. Planting trees at our site will support benefits for people, wildlife and climate, now and for the future.  

We have become an affiliate member of BASIS so we can share information about sustainability in sport and support their commitment to tackle the climate and ecological emergency in and through sport.

We are building relationships with Wiltshire Council so we can share information about funding streams and Community Engagement Managers so we can advise clubs about local funding.

We are joining Planet Super League to promote going green with football. Whether you're playing the beautiful game, heading to the ground or watching on TV, Planet Super League have a wide range of fun activities covering different topics within sustainability, to make your footballing experience greener!
