They are working towards a sustainability initiative that was started in 2005 when they began looking at the Blazer’s carbon footprint; including the fans’ carbon footprint getting to games and whatnot. They would like to do more benefit than harm and they have even been participating in food waste composting. Sports teams have an incredible amount of power within cities and we would like them to be working towards making our cities and neighborhoods better.
