World Cleanup Day: Teaming up to tackle the global waste crisis

World Cleanup Day is the world’s largest one-day civic action to engage more than 180 countries to tackle global waste crisis. This saw a saving of the equivalent of over 300,000 330ml bottles saved at Formula E events between January 2019 and March 2020. In Season 7, the teams had 25 per cent fewer tyres to use at a single race event, and up to 50 per cent fewer at double-headers, meaning fewer tyres needed to be made, shipped and recycled than in any other FIA championship. The life of Formula E’s tyres doesn’t end after they’ve left the race track, though, as 100 per cent of them go on to be recycled and are given a second life. “All of our tyres after each event go back to the warehouse and they’re recycled,” says Jerome Mondain, Michelin Motorsport’s Formula E Manager.
