With the start of college football this weekend, it's important to remember to go green - regardless of whether you cheer for the Crimson and White or Blue and Maze! It may take some extra planning to make your tailgating more eco-friendly, but follow these tips to help reduce your impact on our Earth.

  • Use recycled trash bags, making sure to fill each as full as possible
  • Be sure to include bags or boxes for recycling glass and aluminum cans
  • Don't bring lots of individually wrapped snacks, they create a ton of waste
  • Avoid plastic cups by asking friends to bring personal water bottles or their reusable souvenir cups from previous games
  • Haul off excess fruits & veggies for composting
  • Wear vintage game gear - from your closet or found in re-sell shops - rather than buying new every year
