888 (LSE: 888), one of the world's leading online betting and gaming companies, is pleased to announce that it has partnered with ECOSEC, the provider of tamper evident security solutions, to use its biodegradable poker chip bags at all upcoming 888LIVE events, starting with 888poker LIVE Barcelona, from 12th – 23rd May.

Ahead of the event in Barcelona, 888poker will replace the essential, secure bags which were previously used with ECOSEC's biodegradable, tamper evident bags made from a Low Density Polyethylene (LDPE), which has an additive that makes the plastic oxo-biodegradable. This will enable all players at the tournament to continue to store their accumulated chips in a safe and secure way, without the use of single-use plastic. 

This will be the first time that the Group – or any major operator in the sector – incorporates biodegradable chip bags at an event. The bags will be used across all upcoming 888LIVE events globally in the coming years, supporting 888 in its ambition to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030, as part of the "Made Greener" pillar of its Made for the Future sustainability framework.

The initial purchase will remove approximately 130 kilograms of plastic from circulation. This will also support ECOSEC's new campaign, Poker Against Plastic Pollution, which works with selected charities to facilitate the planting of trees to help offset the impacts of environmental pollution. 

All chip bags will be branded with the 888poker and 888poker LIVE logos, and players will be able to share their progress in the tournament by using the QR code printed on the bags and tagging 888poker and #888pokerAgainstPlasticPollution during the event.
