Making the Regatta More Sustainable: How ‘Head of the Charles' Is About More Than Just Rowing

NBC Universal, Inc.

The Head of the Charles Regatta has found great success in its mission to make the regatta more sustainable. 

The team has eliminated all single-use plastic from vendors and instead requires them to use compostable materials.  Additionally, they have added compost bins and water refill stations for spectators and athletes.

Since making these changes the amount of trash has declined and recycling volume increased, despite adding a day to the regatta. For more information on HOCR’s commitment to sustainability and how you can support it at  

The Head of the Charles takes place October 21st through October 23rd in Cambridge.

Morgan's Message is a non-profit named for Morgan Rodgers, who died by suicide. Now, the non-profit helps athletes everywhere, including here in Massachusetts, prioritize mental health.
