The pods placed at the stadium from this weekend's game is part of Etihad Airline's Recycle, Reward, Repeat initiative, which will help fans recycle plastic bottles and earn rewards from the airline.
Manchester City has been quite progressive in ESG activities, developing and adopting environmentally-friendly practices over several years.
The team has taken many sustainable-focused initiatives, including a waste system that sends zero waste to landfills from the Etihad Campus, removing single-use plastics from the Etihad Stadium, increasing vegan food options and moving into compostable packaging.
Under its Choose Well campaign, Etihad Airways launched the Conscious Choices Loyalty Programme, which will spread awareness regarding protecting the environment and nature and care for the planet by making eco-friendly choices.
The programme will reward travellers who carry less baggage on board and offset their flights' carbon emissions using Etihad Guest Miles.
Pete Bradshaw, director of sustainability at Manchester City, said: “Manchester City has a clear set of values as we continue on our sustainability journey and look to adopt more environmentally friendly approaches and connect with our communities to encourage and change behaviours.
