Eco-Products and the University of Colorado have teamed up to make Folsom Field one of the nation’s greenest stadiums — on the outside as well as on the inside.
The university has expanded its zero-waste efforts from inside the stadium — where virtually all food and drink packaging is refillable, recyclable or compostable — to outside the stadium at a special tailgating area on Franklin Field.
The grassy area – now called the Aluminum Can Zone Presented by Ball Corporation – is the latest in a recent wave of updates to the fan experience in and around Folsom Field. Special tents available for rent come complete with furniture, a cooler, and specially designed compostable tailgate supplies. The tents are so popular that they’ve long been sold out.
“This is a perfect example of how easy it can be for fan experience and sustainability to coexist,” said Sarah Martinez, Sustainability Maven for Eco-Products. “This is about as green as a tailgating area can get.”
Eco-Products, based in Boulder, Co., already supplies hundreds of thousands of compostable cups, plates, trays, utensils and straws at Folsom Field. Now it is also supplying special plates, cups and utensils – all of which are compostable and all in University of Colorado colors — for the tailgating area as well.
The partnership simplifies waste disposal for fans. All plates, cups, and utensils can go into the same compostable bins – along with any leftover food.
