Boston Red Sox to Green Fenway

Boston Red Sox to Green Fenway

Organic hot dogs and locally grown produce at a ballpark?

October 24, 2007 —

The Boston Red Sox have announced plans to green Fenway Park in collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council. A souped-up recycling program and improved refuse removal are already on the agenda, and the team is looking into a joint solar program with Keyspan Energy. Aramark, the firm responsible for managing concessions at Fenway, will begin serving locally grown organic produce and hot dogs.

The goal is to have all of the environmental upgrades in place for the ballpark's 100th Anniversary in 2012. By that time Fenway won't be the only green ballpark though, the Washington Nationals are building a stadium that will be first American professional sports complex to achieve LEED certification.
