Since 2003, the Philadelphia Eagles have been leading the National Football League in running a more sustainable sports team. Solar panels adorn the practice facility, biodegradable cups, bowls, and utensils are the norm at concession stands, and 14 million kilowatt-hours of purchased wind power effectively take Lincoln Financial Field and its training complex 100 percent off the grid.
Heck, even the Eagles cheerleaders release an annual calendar showcasing the latest is sustainable eco-fashion and benefiting green charities.
So it's no surprise that this year, PETA ranked Lincoln Financial Field as the most vegetarian-friendly stadium in the NFL.
"Protein-packed mock-steak sandwiches, faux-chicken sandwiches, veggie dogs, and veggie burgers are coming off the grill faster than DeSean Jackson in the open field," the release praised.
In second place was Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum, home of the Oakland Raiders, which the org loves for its veggie burritos, veggie burgers, and (in premium seating areas) meat-free fajitas.
Rounding out the rest of the list are Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisc.; Atlanta's [skipwords]Georgia [/skipwords] Dome; and a tie for fifth between Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo.; and Ford Field in Detroit.
