Major League Concessions Now Environmentally Friendly

ARAMARK, which provides concessions, food services, and facilities and retail store management for 14 major league and 10 minor league baseball teams, announced environmentally friendly practices Monday that it has incorporated into operations at Major League Baseball stadiums for this season, which began today with a Red Sox victory against Oakland in Tokyo. ARAMARK said its eco-friendly changes dovetail with Major League Baseball's collaboration with the Natural Resources Defense Council.

"ARAMARK recognizes the importance and value of incorporating earth-friendly practices in the communities in which we live, work, and serve," said Liza Cartmell, group president of ARAMARK Sports & Entertainment. "Our environmental strategy provides us with an opportunity to reduce our carbon footprint while continuing to deliver exceptional ballpark services and menus for our baseball partners and fans."

At parks such as Citizens Bank Park, Coors Field, Fenway Park, McAfee Coliseum, Minute Maid Park, Oriole Park at Camden Yards, and PNC Park, the company is recycling glass, plastic, and cardboard generated from game day preparations; using biodegradable service ware and cups and napkins made from 100 percent post-consumer fiber; and recycling its frying oil to be used as bio-diesel fuel.

Some healthier items have been added to concession menus, as well. To see what's offered at each ballpark, visit www.ballparkfoods.com.
