Football and Basketball and Baseball, Oh My!

February 10, 2011

In doing research on tailgating and recycling, I came across this great list to make your next baseball tailgate environmentall friendly. Our project is focused around collegiate football and basketball tailgates, but this list is a great example of what people can do.

The article from Valleynewslive.com, 5 green tips for your baseball tailgate, outlines several different (and feasible!) ways people can make their tailgates environmentally friendly.

The best suggestion in my opinion was the last: 5. Just say no… to paper plates. Disposable dishware is commonplace at tailgates, and the article suggests using sugarcane plates from the company Eco Products that naturally biodegrade in 45-60 days and are durable as well as heat resistant.
