Brad Rebello's curator insight, October 8, 2014 6:02 PM

       In this article I learned it's important to go green in any sport facility, arena, or stadium. It costs a lot of money to keep a place up and running so you have to do everything you can to save yourself some money.  Several teams have made improvements to their facilities and it has made it energy efficient and environmentally friendly. With the addition of going green, it results in fans supporting the team and the primary cause. Fans will be loyal if the organization gives back to the community by doing things such as public transportation to the events and placing recycle bins throughout the area. Getting sponsorships will provide excess awareness to help people join the movement. If going green continues to grow, there will be bigger and better benefits for the community, team, and organization.

         Something that I found interesting is that the Atlanta Braves finalized a sponsorship with Coca- Cola Recycling. The company placed recycle containers around the stadium to encourage fans to recycle during their time at the game. They also made awareness shirts made out of recycled bottles for staff to wear. At the Rose Garden Arena, it has saved 4 million watts of electricity, or $424,000 in savings.

          I selected this article because this is a great technique to have in your facility. It is a win-win situation for you. You can save money in your business and get awareness to your cause and start trends. Also, this is an easy and affordable movement that makes a huge impact. This will help me in the sport management industry because it has taught me a new tactic while running a facility. If you're running your own facility, you have to come up with these type of creative solutions and this has given me ideas about facility management.
