Sustainable Philadelphia Project Eric Hamilton, Mike Dunne, Matt Donnelly, Matt Killian Allison Hayes-Conroy; Colleen Hammelman Sustainable Environments April 25, 2013 Philadelphia Eagles Go Green The National Football League is a multi-billion dollar organization that welcomes millions of fans into each team’s stadium. The Philadelphia Eagle’s have been spearheading the environmental efforts made by the NFL and have really helped Philadelphia in their sustainable efforts. The Eagles organization has set the example for the rest of teams in the league and has been asked to share their ideas with other teams around the country. Because of this Go Green effort, our group decided to take a closer look at what makes Lincoln Financial Field so sustainable and how it is effecting the Philadelphia community. As we took our tour of the stadium, we learned about a lot of systems and processes that we had anticipated, and we also learned about some peculiar ideas that the Eagles have used to continue to “Go Green”. These systems include wind turbines, solar panels, motion sensing light switches with automatic shut offs, beverage cups made of corn rather than plastic, and composting left over food found after the game. Lincoln financial field, the home of the Philadelphia Eagles is a high performance green stadium. They have recently installed equipment that has improved their operational efficiency and become more environmentally friendly.

Doing this while happily housing American football consumers is not an easy task. In 2003, the Eagles started their Go Green! Campaign, a program designed to conserve resources throughout the organization. As of January, the campaign has helped divert over three million pounds of waste from landfills and conserved enough energy to power 7,150 homes a year. “The Linc” as Eagles fans know it, has fairly noticeable wind turbines which are located at the highest points of the stadium for maximum efficiency.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
