Seattle Mariners: Forget Bobbleheads, Mariners Plan to Give Away Compost
Seattle Mariners Will Turn Ballpark Waste Into Compost and Give it Away
One of the hottest tickets for Mariner baseball each year is Ichiro bobblehead night. Fans get their tickets early and line up hours before the game to try and snag a miniature Ichiro with a bobbling head.
They have a new promotion to offer to fans this year, and I am not so certain people will be quite as anxious for this one.
However, it is a much more novel and fairly ingenious idea.
The Mariners are going to take things like food waste, packaging material, drink cups, utensils and other trash generated at games, compost it, and then give away small bags of the garden enhancing material at games during the 2011 season.
Mariners fans hope those will be the only sacks of waste they'll see while attending games.
That was just one of the new green measures mentioned as six Northwest pro teams announced the creation of Green Sports Alliance. They are a non-profit designed to, you guessed it, help the environment.
It's about time. Hopefully this alliance spreads, or at least its ideas. As they said at the press conference, "We've had a culture of consumption. We need to have a culture of conservation."
