On Sunday, October 28, the first 40,000 fans in attendance for the Bears-Panthers contest will receive eco-friendly tote bags from Constellation and the Chicago Bears.
Constellation will retire renewable energy certificates (RECs) to cover the expected energy usage at Soldier Field for the Save Da Planet game on October 28th. The RECs will help those attending the game avoid approximately 42 metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions – that's more than 1,7000 propane grills commonly used at tailgates!
Coming to the Save Da Planet Game on 10/28? Bears fans spotted recycling at the game could receive a FREE Save Da Planet button from a member of Bears Fan Services!

The Chicago Bears are proud to welcome Constellation as the energy provider to Halas Hall and our partner in the 2nd annual “Save Da Planet” week. "Save Da Planet" week will run from October 23 through October 28, 2012 with the goal of enacting sustainable business practices and raising awareness of conservation issues. The Bears organization encourages fans to engage in environmentally-friendly practices and adopt proactive ways to reuse, recycle and reduce their environmental footprint.
In partnership with Constellation, Chicago Bears staff members and players will be assisting Lake Forest Open Lands at the Middlefork Farm Nature Preserve in Lake Forest. The hands-on volunteer event will help with brush removal, cattail pulling, burn prep, seed collecting, and trail maintenance, among other things. The fall habitat restoration and preserve management is needed to maintain the desired habitat, keep out invasive species and maintain a safe and welcoming environment for public use. The Middlefork Farm Nature Preserve is part of an 800 acre corridor which historically was used for agriculture purposes and is now being restored to natural open space for wildlife habitat, environment programs and public recreation.

The Chicago Bears are committed to doing our part to Save Da Planet by enacting sustainable business practices and raising awareness of conservation issues. Our organization encourages our great fans to engage in environmentally friendly practices and adopt proactive ways to reuse, recycle, and reduce their environmental footprint.
