2008 PROGRAM UPDATE

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.
