Eagles Really are the Gold Standard (At Being Green)

Jan 16, 2007, 12:32 PM EDT

The Philadelphia Eagles may not have a winning record on the field, but
they are setting the record in the NFL as the greenest team in football.

"They are the gold standard," says Tim Sexton, a Los Angeles-based
environmental and marketing consultant, who organized American Idol’s
"Give Back" charity event as well as Philadelphia’s LiveAid concert. He
was hired by the Eagles to start "Go Green," a huge effort to become
environmentally friendly.

I’ve mentioned the Eagles efforts to "Go Green" in the past, but yesterday ABC News had a nice article highlighting some of the efforts taken by the team.  My favorite fact is that the beer cups at the Linc are made of a corn-based material and disintegrates in 50 days.
