I read some exciting news this week about how the New Meadowlands Stadium is setting the bar for green sports venues http://www.environmentalleader.com/2009/06/01/new-meadowlands-stadium-ups-ante-for-green-sports-venues/
This is particulary exciting for me because in 2007 we introduced green event practices to the old Giants Stadium for the Live Earth Concert. Through the commitment of the venue and its vendors, we were able to achieve a 76% diversion rate the day of the event. The Operations Team at the stadium hoped they would be able to incorporate many of the practices they learned on Live Earth when the new stadium was built.
Live Earth organizers also hoped to be able to leave just such a legacy at the concert venue sites http://www.environmentalleader.com/2007/06/27/live-earth-wants-to-leave-green-legacy-at-concert-venues/
It is that type of news that makes my heart sing--what an impact each of us can have!
