Major League Baseball Rolls Out A Crazy Long Green Red Carpet

Tomorrow (July 15), one of the longest—and greenest—red carpets ever created in the United States will cover 18 blocks of Manhattan. It’s all part of Major League Baseball’s unprecedented league-wide greening initiative — and comes in honor of the 2008 MLB All-Star Game.

Baseball heroes such as Hank Aaron, Yogi Berra, and Willie Mays (along with the American League and National League All-Stars) will parade down the more than 95,000 square feet of recycled carpet — with 100% of the electricity used to produce the material made generated from an on-site solar array and green energy credits.

The Natural Resources Defense Council is working with MLB to ensure everything is done as eco-friendly as possible.

Couple questions here:

Do we really need a carpet (recycled or otherwise) that stretches over 18 blocks? Couldn’t these people use, say, the actual street to walk on?

Where will this carpet go next?

And we’re once more disappointed that MLB decided to partner up with Chevy’s FlexFuel Silverados to deliver players and their families to the red carpet. Nothing like showing off a truck that gets 14-16MPG during a time of high oil prices and claiming that its “green”. FAIL.
