Major league sports teams in the Northwest have been recycling, composting food waste, cutting their power use and more.
Consider the Mariners. From 2006-2009, the team:
- reduced natural gas use by 60 percent
- reduced electricity use by 30 percent
- reduced water use by 15 percent
Now, the Mariners and other teams from Seattle, Portland and Vancouver B.C. are forming a non-profit with the goal of spreading the green gospel to stadiums nationwide.
