St. Louis Rams Celebrate Green Week
In an effort to bring additional awareness to the importance of environmental sustainability, Sunday’s game is designated as the St. Louis Rams Green Game presented by Meridian Waste, Ameren Missouri, Monsanto, Green Clean Commercial and Metro Transit-St. Louis.
As part of the Green Game, the Rams have offset 100% of the electricity used at the Edward Jones Dome for the game with Missouri wind energy credits from Ameren Missouri Pure Power. The Rams have also offset all fan travel to and from the Edward Jones Dome with carbon offsets and the team has offset the Seattle Seahawks’ flight to and from St. Louis with carbon offsets. These offsets will have the equivalent environmental benefit of removing 497 average cars from the U.S. roadways for one year.
The Rams Green Team, presented by Meridian Waste, Ameren Missouri, Monsanto, Green Clean Commercial and Metro Transit- St. Louis, will be picking up recycling throughout the Edward Jones Dome at the end of each quarter to promote recycling.

Earlier in the week, Rams players traveled to Fairmont City, IL to host a PLAY 60 event in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month. Earlier this year, the Fairmont City Library Center was the site of the Rams fourth annual playground build. The community, which is 66 percent Hispanic, was previously without a playground.
