Super Bowl Sunday Green


In 18 days, the National Football League will present Superbowl XLV, in Arlington, Texas at Cowboys Stadium which opened in 2009. Cowboys Stadium is listed as one of the most beautiful eco-friendly stadiums in the world, leading the way for future building to adopt environmentally responsible practices. While such arenas are notorious for their wastefulness, we commend any effort to improve. Cowboys Stadium incorporated truly innovative and thoughtful green measures.

A few features at Cowboys Stadium include:  

  • Reduction of solid waste by 25%
  • Energy use reduction of 20%
  • Recycled plastic seats
  • Reduction of water use by 1 million gallons
  • 90% of the old stadium construction waste recycled
  • Renewable energy purchases
  • 30 acres of grass parking to reduce toxic runoff into nearby waterways
  • Highly efficient LED display (world's largest)
  • Use of native plants and trees
  • Recycling bins


While the majority of us will be not be at the actual stadium watching the game, Our Daily Green has the opportunity to share some downloadable Super Bowl Party Games. Python Printable Games has a fabulous selection of clever, ice breaking, interesting games for many occasions. I was given a sample of their Super Bowl Party Games and cannot wait to play them with our group of friends.

Quite frankly, sometimes the best part of a football game is company and what better way to enjoy it than with some friendly, fun games? The pack I received contained games for everything about the Super Bowl, from commercials, to halftime shows, to football, to food, to beer trivia. Each download also comes with an answer sheet. I think the games will make the party that much more fun and look forward to sharing them.

I appreciate downloadable games because there is no wasteful packaging or carbon footprint from shipping. You can print as few or as many games as you need, so no paper is wasted. Python also offers several FREE printable downloads to test their product and they also offer a 30 day money back guarantee.


I received the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Wow I didn't know they had been so environmentally friendly when building the stadium.Knowing these facts will make watching the Super Bowl more fun since our Titans won't be playing in it this year! I am so glad to have found your blog. I really like it!

Hi Alicia, and welcome! what is really cool is that they DID NOT have to build in this manner. The back story is that they hoped to qualify for a federal EPA rating, but the project ended before the stadium was complete. So instead they just kept the green initiative.

Now to be real, there is no way such a place will ever be truly ECO FRIENDLY... but what I really respect and appreciate is that they are trying to take steps to promote that.

So since I'm a BROWNS fan, I feel your pain, but tenfold. I'll still enjoy the game! :)
