5 ways to make the Super Bowl greener

The Super Bowl is on tonight and I have some ideas to make it more green:

  1. Make the football out of recycled leather. Maybe Moms & Pops around the U.S. can retire their worn leather chairs in the name of footballs.
  2. Play local teams…locally. So why can’t we rig it so the Packers and Bears play together? And host it someplace in the middle of the two, like Milwaukee?
  3. And what about those jerseys? Organic cotton, anyone?
  4. Instead of busses and planes, load everything up on bicycles. Just ride tandem with baskets in the front and you’re set!
  5. Finally, traditional stadium food could be replaced by locally-grown options. Who says a fresh green salad is messy amongst 105,000 people?
