Posted on February 4, 2012


The NFL has already promoted how much greener Superbowl XLVI will be in with the use of “green power” from Green Mountain Energy via the descriptive infographic (click here). They’ve even kept a tally about how much the local community has already saved in water and carbon emissions.

We’ve also been amazed with the amount of food consumed during Superbowl parties with Wall Street Journal’s excellent interactive graphic about how many chicken wings, pizza, chips, beer, pretzels and avocados will be devoured in a span of a few hours. So with so much partying about to ensue within a day, it’s time to scan the country for what we can do to partner with the NFL and create a green Superbowl party.

Here’s a timesaver with a quick index of options for having an eco-friendly Superbowl celebration:
