NBA Goes Green for All-Stars

williamst2The 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.

One thought on “NBA Goes Green for All-Stars

  1. There could be no better investment in America than to invest in America becoming energy independent! We need to utilize everything in out power to reduce our dependence on foreign oil including using our own natural resources. Create cheap clean energy, new badly needed green jobs, and reduce our dependence on foreign oil. The high cost of fuel this past year seriously damaged our economy and society. The cost of fuel effects every facet of consumer goods from production to shipping costs. After a brief reprieve gas is inching back up. OPEC will continue to cut production until they achieve their desired 80-100. per barrel. If all gasoline cars, trucks, and SUV’s instead had plug-in electric drive trains, the amount of electricity needed to replace gasoline is about equal to the estimated wind energy potential of the state of North Dakota. There is a really good new book out by Jeff Wilson called The Manhattan Project
