Ascot Racecourse is setting itself the ambitious target of washing over 500,000 plastic glasses of all kinds during the five-day Royal Meeting this week – champagne, beer, wine, everything….

In addition to the Re-Cup scheme, Ascot’s Official Water, Harrogate Spring Water, is bottled in PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastic. All PET bottles collected at Ascot will be recycled and used to produce new bottles in a closed loop recycling system. Harrogate Water pioneered the ‘Incredible Shrinking Bottle Campaign’ in partnership with Keep Britain Tidy which encourages customers to ‘Twist It, Cap It, Recycle It,’ to make their bottle extremely compact and increase recycling efficiency. Dedicated PET plastic bottle bins are clearly marked on site.
Karen can usually be found glued to her computer or at the stables. Having edited several national magazines she co-founded Eclipse Magazine in 2008 after realising that many of her friends were nervous about going racing due to lack of information – what to wear, how to bet etc.
She absolutely loves her job (how many people can say that?!) and is truly grateful to all supporters of and contributors to Eclipse Magazine.
If you are reading this she would like to say THANK YOU! (And please spread the word about Eclipse…!!)
