No, not the color green. Green as in environmentally friendly green. Or at least as environmentally friendly a ballpark in a neighborhood not accessible by useful mass transit can possibly be!
The kitchen hosts energy efficient appliances and the hood is self cleaning, which means no chemicals are needed. The paint in the stadium emits less toxic fumes, Estevez reported. Water usage will be down by 50 percent, thanks in part to waterless urinals. That represents savings of 4.4 million gallons of water.
Might I note at this juncture that I don’t understand the sorcery and voodoo which hath wrought waterless urinals? I am about as wigged out every time I encounter one of those things as I would be if I were to see my dead grandmother crawling up my leg with a knife in her teeth. But yay environment.
(thanks to Old Gator for the link. It’s cute seeing him trying to be positive about the Marlins, even if we know it won’t last)
