  • Phillies are Becoming Greener, Host eCycle Event Saturday 6/25

    As you loyal Green Philly Blog readers may know, Beth & I are avid Phillies fans.  (Case in point: see insert below as we celebrated World Series Victory in ’08.)  While the Phillies are lovable for so many reasons (my fav player Chooch to name one ?!?), their green ambitions are certainly noteworthy between their Red Goes Green campaign, Pitcher Ryan Madson (ahh) greening his home and awards for being most veggie-friendly by PETA

    Not to be done by the Linc’s ambition to be the Greenest Stadium in the World, the Phils have stepped up their eco-game yet again.

    The Phillies have purchased 20 million kilowatt hours of Renewable Energy Certificate (REC)s for the 4th consecutive year, thus earning the 2011 Green power Leadership Award from the EPA!  This season has a brand-new high-volume organic waste decomposition system, to decompose all organic food waste saving them from the landfill.

    As Uwishunu reported, the Phillies have quite the record of green events.

    This Saturday, June 25, the Phillies and Waste Management are hosting a Red Goes Green eCycle Event from 8-11 AM – bring used electronic items to Lot S  (like small televisions, computer CPUs, monitors, and peripherals; VCRs, copiers, stereo equipment and radios, calculators, cell phones, scanners, fax machines and telephones) to be recycled free of charge (max 2 per person.)  First 200 participants will receive an autographed photo card from greenie Ryan Madson.

    Between these green updates and the Phils’ ridiculous record currently, I have hopes of a very red October! 😉
