"We believe our fans are just as committed to doing their part," said Barry Monaghan, NHL Vice President, Retail Sales & Marketing. "And by offering a commemorative reusable bag, we are encouraging our fans to reduce waste by using it time and time again."
The reusable bags are part of the NHL's ongoing green initiative. The NHL has launched a League-wide green initiative to support sustainable living and business practices. NHL Green™ is a year-round commitment to making the League and its Clubs more ecologically responsible while educating our fans and raising awareness of environmental issues.
