What's Happening Tonight At Eagles-Jags Game

Thursday's game is themed around the Philadelphia Eagles nationally recognized Go Greenprogram.

2009 is on its way to being a record setting year for the Eagles Go Greenprogram as the Eagles have already recycled 57.22 tons of commingled material. In 2008, the year's total of recycled commingled material was 65.09 tons. The Eagles also recently recycled 21.98 tons worth of 2008 programs, the most we have ever recycled.

For the second year in a row the Eagles will be purchasing 100% of the Eagles energy from clean energy sources, the majority being wind power.

The latest edition to the Eagles Go Green efforts in 2009 is food composting. The Eagles have already composted 6.5 tons of food, with 3.1 tons of the food composting total coming from the Kenny Chesney concert in July.

Thursday's game will also feature Go Green Public Service Announcements from Philadelphia Eagles players. They will give fans tips on going green such as carpooling and energy conservation.

As part of the Go Greenprogram, Thursday's game will host Honorary Captains Anne Rahn of Delaware Valley Earth Force and Deputy Streets Commissioner Carlton Williams of The Philadelphia Recycling Department, accompanied by Eagles receiving great, Harold Carmichael.

In partnership with Thursday's Go Green game, The Delaware Valley Earth Force and The Philadelphia Recycling Department will have booths in the HeadHouse plaza featuring information on the 'green' aspects of their organizations. Kirby Bucket, The Philadelphia Recycling Department's mascot, will be on hand to help distribute the information.
