New Jersey Nets PSA (0:31)

The New Jersey Nets have recently become the first major professional sports team to be accredited as CarbonNeutral. The Nets plan to lower their carbon footprint by focusing on improving energy efficiency, recycling rates, water efficiency, indoor environmental quality and establishing green procurement policies for the materials the Nets use on a regular basis.

In January, the Nets launched as an educational resource for Nets fans to learn about energy conservation, global warming, sustainability, recycling, air quality, forestation, renewable energy, greener cleaning products, policy and legislation, key green terms, and water conservation (New Jersey Nets).
