We’ve discovered a lot of ideas on how to make sporting events greener.  These include encouraging use of public transportation, powering events with renewable energy, using recycled, recyclable, and compostable materials for food and drinks, improving waste management, greening team travel, and reducing water and chemical usage.  There are a lot of readily achievable changes that can be made here in the community, including increasing incentives to use public transportation and putting recycling bins next to every trash can.  We also want to raise public awareness for the Go Green initiative by having special promotions at events.  Our intended audience for this project is the athletic department here at SUNY Fredonia, as well as everyone in the community who attends the sporting events here.
