Maybe we ” have to start re-posting on Facebook, forward to the National Arbor Day Foundation, Departments of Natural Resources of states hosting the Superbowl in the next few years, the National Ad Council.
Press releases from them and little ad spots (product placement in GE and Budweiser commercials) could heighten public awareness that “even the NFL” is concerned– so should you, and your company, too!

In all the Super Bowl build up – and all the commercials during the game – I certainly never heard mention of the sustainable measures the NFL had taken. I’m especially impressed by the ties to the community (by donating leftover food to soup kitchens, reaching out to schools for sports equipment and book donations, etc.), and I think these anecdotes would be great stories to share. Slyly pointing out that we haven’t heard of these efforts is a failure of public outreach. Everyone should hear about 2,012 (in fact, 2,876) trees!
