People who live green also take care of their bodies and do sports. And people who do sports are also passionate about making the environment safe by leading the way for eco-friendly living. The NFL teams which have embraced this practice should be a beacon of light for all of us to follow.
San Francisco 49ers
In the recent years, many National Football League players have embraced healthy living, such as San Francisco 49ers, who have decided to set an example for all of us to follow truly. Not only that they are green in their free time, but they have also managed to make their course green. Namely, their Stadium is the first stadium to include a living roof. A living roof is a roof which is covered in green and flowering plants and put on the top of a building to reduce the building energy use and provide environmental benefits of natural insulation.
Other NLF Clubs
Since the 49ers have started making a difference, even 32 NFL clubs have started their journey on formal-green energy programs. Some of the NFL clubs which are leading the way for change are the New York Jets and Giants, Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots and Seattle. The Levi’s Stadium of the 49ers has shown the way for all of these NFL clubs and inspired them to start living green.
Changes Still To Come
Many people believe that the NFL still has a long way to go to make a difference. However, this is an amazing start. Since all of these clubs are supporting this idea, it is only a question of time when the NFL set standards will also change and make it obligatory for all stadiums to look like the Levi’s Stadium in San Francisco. We have 49ers to thank for this. Many things still have to change, such as carbon offsetting measures, charging stations made for e-vehicles, which will make up for emissions to travel to games, but we expect these things to change in the future to come.
