Philadelphia Eagles Going Green

Philadelphia Eagles Going Green

The Philadelphia Eagles are our new heroes in sports — they’re leading the way towards becoming green in the NFL.

The Eagles just decided to install a $30 million renewable energy system in their stadium, although this isn’t their first green venture. The team established a Go Green program in 2003 which has lead to the stadium’s distinctive wind turbines and solar installations.

For those of you skeptics out there, the green energy system they’ve set up will not only help the environment, but also save the team money. The franchise also expects to save $60 million in energy costs over the next 20 years.

There needs to be more of this in sports! Kudos to the Eagles for leading the way!

This is pretty cool, or should we say hot?

Kohl's has put solar panels on 100 of their department stores, with 62 of them being in California.

The 1,400 panels generates around 40% of the building's electricity, saving Kohl's a whopping $50 million.

And they're not done yet! The department store hopes to be 100% carbon neutral by the end of this year.

Impressive!

Hopefully more businesses follow their lead.
