Go, team green! Sustainability-minded sports 'alliance' signs more members

If you're a fan of sustainable business practices, you might want to check and see if your favorite sports teams is part of the green sports cause.

How well does your favorite sports team score when it comes to running its business with an eye to the environment and sustainable resource management?

You might want to check and see if it is part of the Green Sports Alliance, an organization made up of professional sports teams, leagues, venues and universities that care about the issue. And no, New York fans who live near me personally, none of your teams has gotten on board yet.

The founding members of the alliance, which I wrote about back in March , have managed to convince quite a few other teams to join their cause. The new members include:

  • Minnesota Twins (Target Field)
  • San Diego Padres (PETCO Park)
  • Washington Stealth and Everett Silvertips (Comcast Arena)
  • Detroit Lions (Ford Field)
  • Seattle Thunderbirds (ShoWare Center)
  • St. Louis Cardinals (Busch Stadium)
  • Cleveland Cavaliers (Cleveland Clinic Courts) and Lake Erie Monsters (Quicken Loans Arena)
  • Florida Marlins
  • Kansas City Chiefs (Kauffman Stadium)
  • Arizona State University
  • University of Washington
  • Tampa Bay Lighting (St. Pete Times Forum)
  • Cleveland Indians (Progressive Field)
  • Tamp Bay Rays (Tropicana Field)
  • Philadelphia Flyers (Wells Fargo Center)
  • Boston Red Sox (Fenway Park)

Awaiting more news about sports and sustainability during the first week of August, when the alliance holds its first annual summit to share best practices about sustainability.
