Cameron Crazies Go Green

“Bleed Blue. Live Green.”

I’ll start this post by saying that I absolute loathe Duke Basketball – I have to because I am a UNC fan (and a budding UVA fan). Even though I cheer against Duke in every way possible, I have to give them some credit for their commitment to environmentalism. This Thursday when the Blue Devils play NC State at Cameron Indoor Stadium, the entire student section (even the mascot) will be decked out in Green to raise awareness on sustainability.

The “Green Out” is part of Duke’s participation in Focus the Nation, a national initiative on global warming. According to DukeNews,Duke will purchase carbon offsets equivalent to the electricity, steam and transportation consumed by the game, working in partnership with the renewable-energy company NativeEnergy.”
