MAYOR ENCOURAGES NASHVILLIANS TO TAKE ENVIRONMENTAL PLEDGE

Historic Greer Stadium will become “Green Stadium” as the Nashville Sounds take on the Memphis Redbirds this Saturday, June 13 at 6 p.m.

Join Mayor Karl Dean, Nashville Electric Service, TVA and the Nashville Sounds for the 2nd Annual Sounds Go Green Night to support energy-efficiency and sustainable living.

On June 13th Sounds players will sport special green-colored uniforms on the field, and fans are encouraged to wear green as well.

From The Office Of Mayor Karl Dean

The Mayors Pledge consists of five small actions that can have big collective impact.

Use compact fluorescent light bulbs, turn off the water while brushing your teeth, take the bus, walk, bicycle or carpool instead of drive at least one a week, plant a tree and use reusable shopping bags – those are the five simple actions Mayor Karl Dean is asking every Nashvillian to take to help make the city more green.

Dean will officially kick off his Environmental Pledge campaign at the Nashville Sounds “Go Green Night” this Saturday, June 13. The game against the Memphis Redbirds will start at 6 p.m. At 5:40 p.m., the mayor will be joined by the Gild family, who will take the ceremonial first pledge.

“Our citizens have a tremendous desire to help make Nashville more environmentally sustainable and to help address the bigger issue of global climate change,” Dean said. “While it may seem simple, the most important thing individuals can do is make easy changes in their every day life to reduce waste, reduce energy use and reduce the green house gas emissions that go into our air. Collectively, these efforts will have a huge impact.”
