NHL Green making All-Star environmentally friendly

Tuesday, 01.25.2011 / 1:04 PM / NHL Green

NEW YORK -- While the most talented hockey players in the world are thrilling fans on the ice, the National Hockey League, the Carolina Hurricanes and the RBC Center will ensure that the 2011 NHL All-Star Weekend festivities are conducted in ways that protect the planet.

As part of its multi-faceted sustainability initiative NHL Green, the National Hockey League will partner with the host Hurricanes, the City of Raleigh, the Natural Resources Defense Council, Rock and Wrap It Up! and North Carolina State University to minimize the environmental impact from the various All-Star Weekend festivities Jan. 28-30.

Among the endeavors:

The RBC Center, host venue for the 2011 NHL All-Star Game, will maintain its usual diligence in being environmentally friendly. The arena's 150 recycling bins, which annually divert up to 40 tons of waste from landfills, will help sort all plastic, glass and aluminum waste generated from concession sales. Outside the arena, tailgate recycling will be coordinated by the NHL, Carolina Hurricanes and 86it, a division of Wake County Environmental Services.

NEW YORK -- The National Hockey League is partnering with Rock and Wrap It Up! to fight hunger across the United States and Canada.  This season, all 30 of the League's Member Clubs have committed to work with RWU to pack up all prepared but unsold concession food on game nights for redistribution to local shelters and places of need.

Several NHL Clubs have long-established working relationships with Rock and Wrap It Up! and have donated more than 170,000 meals since 2007. As of Opening Night of the 2010-11 season, all 30 are ensuring that their excess in-arena food doesn't go to waste and that fewer families in North America go to bed hungry, making the NHL the first sports league to have all of its Member Clubs participate in Rock and Wrap It Up!

Richter: Gulf oil spill a wakeup call

John Kreiser - Columnist

Former NHL goaltender Mike Richter says the oil that's been spilling into the Gulf of Mexico for nearly three months following the explosion of a BP-leased rig on April 20 has to serve as a wakeup call toward the growth of renewable energy.

"This is not BP's problem, not even the gulf's problem. This is all of our problem," Richter said in a conference call sponsored by the Sierra Club after he and Boston Bruins defenseman Andrew Ference were among a group of athletes who took a boat tour of the Gulf Coast region on Tuesday to get a firsthand look at the impact of the continuing oil spill.

"We have an opportunity here to use this as a wakeup call. We can do an awful lot -- we're not expecting to get off fossil fuels by the weekend, but we have to understand that we need to move in the right direction."
