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!
