During the 2009 World Series, which kicks off on Wednesday night in New York, a Green Team will be out amongst the fans in attendance, carrying bags to encourage recycling. In-stadium announcements and Ribbon Board messages will also encourage fans to minimize waste.
Eco-friendly practice is hardly a new concept to the Yankees, however.
The Yankees have prioritized the environmental impact of their new stadium by ensuring the efficiency of equipment and focusing on energy reduction. Instead of petroleum-based plastics, beverage cups are made of biodegradable material. Waste generation is tackled through composting and recycling, resulting in fewer trash pickups and trash trucks on the road.
