Green Your Football Season: Cruisin' for a Boozin'

Whether you're rooting for a team in the NFL or the NCAA, it's possible to enjoy the games a bit less wastefully. This week's tips are about how to do just that.

Tip #4: Watch the game with an eco-friendly brew

Plenty of NFL cities have fiendishly green breweries — and a mediocre-at-best football team. Seattle is Seahawk country, but it's also where New Belgium Brewing Co. switched to solely wind power. Denver is not to be outdone, with Odell Brewing Co., which uses recycled glass to bottle its product. And after gutwrenching NBA and MLB seasons, nobody needs a beer more than Cleveland. Great Lakes Brewing Co. is up for the task, running all their trucks on biodiesel. Better get another round. . .the Browns are 0-3.

Bonus: Watch Atlanta Falcons fullback Ovie Mughelli speaking about how you can help protect kids from toxic coal ash.
