Spectator Events

Going to events such as football games and concerts is an important part of culture and society. It's important to continue to promote attendence at events for social and economic sustainability. Your impacts are relatively low if you are going to a venue that is close by, especially if you are taking mass transit to get there. As with everything else, if you are traveling a long distance, your impacts are high.

Actions:

  • Go to events that are close to home to limit travel impacts
  • Pick sustainable food options at the venues
  • Take mass transit or carpool to the event
  • Sustainability practices vary by venue. Some make recycling and waste reduction very high priorities. Some are built and operated to limit impacts and have obtain certifications such as LEED. Support efforts to make entertainment venues more sustainable.
