On the heels of our last post, we stumbled across this brilliant infographic from www.texaselectricityproviders.com. It essentially draws inspiration from some of the stadiums we referenced June 4, to create the ultimate green stadium. It doesn't take a fortune teller to see that green is the way to go. This new path doesn't necessarily mean we have to sacrifice the luxuries to which we've grown accustomed – in this case, stadium sports and other events. Stadiums leave a huge carbon footprint from the land they consume to the waste they produce. Cleaning them up could actually save stadium owners money as well as reduce the environmental strain stadiums cause. From designing stadiums from recycled materials and with green goals in mind to siting stadiums within walking distance of public transportation, there are lots of ways to build a greener stadium.
