A Green Thanksgiving for the Detroit Lions

After the parade, after the turkey, you'll sit down to watch...a carbon neutral football game?

On Thursday, November 22, the Detroit Lions and Ford Field will hold the first carbon neutral NFL game. They plan to offset 1,866,000 pounds of GHG/CO2 emissions in one day to cover the cars, jet, electricity, gas, and water expected to be used to attend the game. They will be purchasing offsets through Carbon Credit Environmental Services (CCES) of Detroit.

The Detroit Lions - Green Bay Packers game on Thursday, November 22 will be broadcast on FOX at 12:30pm (EST).
