Oregonian: Paul Allen's Northwest sports teams lead way in new Green Sports Alliance

7

From Rachel Bachman, an interesting writeup about the intersection of sports, business, and the environment: --------------------- "The Portland-based Green Sports Alliance, launched Monday and backed by the leaders of the nation's largest sports leagues, aims to make leagues, teams and facilities more earth-friendly. Representatives from teams owned by Trail Blazers owner Paul Allen, who also owns the Seahawks and co-owns the Seattle Sounders Major League Soccer team, initiated the concept of an inter-league alliance to reduce sports franchises' impact on the environment. The organization's other founding members are the Seattle Mariners, the NHL's Vancouver Canucks and the WNBA's Seattle Storm." ----------------------- The GSA will be based in Portland, and will work with the federal Environmental Protection Agency, the National Resources Defense Council, Portland State University, and the Bonneville Environmental Foundation.
