In an ongoing commitment to sustainability, the St. Louis Rams are working to further reduce their environmental impact during the team’s fourth annual Green Week. Festivities will begin this Friday with the Rams Recycle Drive at the Anheuser- Busch Tour Center and culminate in the 2013 Green Game against the Chicago Bears at the Edward Jones Dome on November 24.
The Rams are also teaming up with Meridian Waste and Forest Park Forever on November 19 to engage in volunteer fan opportunities in the park, and will hold a forum on Tuesday evening to inform the public about the team’s new solar energy system as well as educating fans about how solar power can benefit residential areas.
For the game against Chicago, the Rams have committed to offsetting 100% of the electricity used at the Edward Jones Dome for the game using Missouri wind energy credits from Ameren Missouri Pure Power. They are also funding offsets for fan travel to the stadium as well as the visiting team’s environmental travel costs.
