I was cruising through my email this morning and saw one from Lauren with “Spurs” in the subject. I figured she was like everyone else with such a severely busted bracket that she was just tuning into the NBA. Turns out, the NBA is partnering with our friends over at the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) for the second annual NBA Green Week “in an effort to generate awareness and funds for protecting the environment.”
On the Spurs Green page, they list American Gas Association as “a valuable resource for understanding the benefits and availability of clean, safe, reliable natural gas (see the column on the right).” Couldn’t have said it better myself.
They list a bunch of “green tips” including:
- Wait until your dishwasher is completely full before you run it.
- Get your oil changed with the proper oil. A better running car uses less gas.
- Check your tire pressure regularly. Under-inflation takes more gas. Check your manual for the correct tire pressure.
- Compost when you can. Yard trimmings and food residuals together constitute 24 percent of the U.S. municipal solid waste stream.
There’s quite a few more “green tips” on their page so be sure to check them out.
You can also visit the NBA Green Week site to learn more. And if anybody from the Spurs wants me to hook them up with a local natural gas utility to give them even more great info on natural gas, I’d be glad to.
