Since initiating the GO GREEN program in 2003, the Philadelphia Eagles have made enormous strides in reducing the organization's impact on the environment by:

Running on 100% clean energy after purchasing 14 million kilowatt-hours of renewable wind energy.

Replacing over 1 million plastic cups annually with cups made from a corn-based material, eliminating the consumption of over 14 tons of plastic.

Substituting approximately 16.6 tons annually of additional plastic, foam and paper flatware and dinnerware (plates, bowls, etc.) with sustainable post-consumer product alternatives like corn-based bio-plastics.

Implementing energy conservation programs reducing electricity consumption at Lincoln Financial Field by more than 33%.

Replacing plastic bottles with aluminum bottles which has less of an environmental impact when recycled.

Recycling over 175 tons of waste, 19% of refuse.

Installing three state-of-the-art solar panels that track the sun throughout the day and produce 10kW of energy.

Converting to 100% post-consumer recycled paper for all soft-tissue products, which will yield an additional annual savings of 10 tons of paper, or about 170 trees.
Implementing an employee reimbursement program to encourage employees to switch from conventional power to wind energy. The participating employees are eliminating the emissions of 283 tons of greenhouse gas emissions each year.

Recycled over 550 tons of mixed metal, plastic, paper and cardboard.
Reducing the printing of the team's Media Guide from 12,000 to 5,000 copies; saving 5,800 pounds of paper.

Bottled Water Carries Hidden Cost to Earth

Good for You, Bad for Mother Earth? | $1.79 might seem like a small price to pay for a bottle of water. But it costs the Earth far more than that.

Compared to a liter of tap water, producing a liter of bottled water requires as much as 2,000 times more energy, according to the first analysis of its kind. The study also found that our nation's bottled water habit sucked up the equivalent of 32 to 54 million barrels of oil last year.

"The bottom line is that we should understand better the implications of our choices," said Peter Gleick, president of the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security in Oakland, Calif. "It suggests more ways to reduce energy use than maybe we otherwise think of."

Bottled water is a big business that is rapidly getting bigger. From 1976 to 2007, the average amount of bottled water drunk per person per year in the United States jumped from about 6 liters (1.6 gallons) to 116 liters (30.6 gallons).

In 2007, …


Air pollution can cause serious health problems. Rarely, it can even kill people — and we’re not exaggerating. That’s why we care so much about the laws that protect us from air pollution. Read on to learn more about the specific parts of our bodies that are affected by air pollution. Air pollution can be made of tiny particles or gases, and these get into your body when you breathe. Different types of air pollution do different things inside your body. Air pollution can directly irritate the eyes, nose, and throat, before it even gets into the lungs. It can cause runny nose, itchy eyes, and scratchy throat. LUNGS When you breathe in, air moves through your nose or mouth, down your throat into your trachea, and then into your lungs. Pollution can irritate the airways. When that happens, muscles around the bronchi get tight; the lining of the bronchi swell; and the bronchi produce excess mucous. When the airways are constricted, it b…

Hazardous Waste

A hazardous waste is a waste with a chemical composition or other properties that make it capable of causing illness, death, or some other harm to humans and other life forms when mismanaged or released into the environment.

Specific procedures determine how waste is identified, classified, listed, and delisted. TYPES OF HAZARDOUS WASTE Hazardous waste is divided into different types (e.g., universal waste) or categories, including RCRA hazardous waste and non-RCRA hazardous waste. Properly categorizing a hazardous waste is necessary f…
