NBA Goes Green for All-Stars
The NBA is making efforts to green up the All-Stars in Phoenix, announced the Arizona Republic.
NBA plans include doubling the number of recycling bins; featuring Phoenix Suns guard Steve Nash and assistant coach Dan Majerle in a recycling public-service announcement to be aired at the events; and using post-consumer products to build a playground as a community-service project.
NBA will also buy 1500 megawatt hours of renewable-energy credits from APS to offset the All-Star Game events. This is enough to power 100 average Arizona homes for a year. The project the credits will fund has not yet been determined project according to APS’ manager for renewable energy.
EL has covered sports from football to Formula One going green.
