An extension of Chevy’s commitment to clean energy projects and youth baseball across the country, we teamed up with CBS EcoMedia to make renovations to Randol Mill Park’s baseball facilities and playground.
“We are working to help reduce carbon emissions in every aspect of our business, including programs like our partnership with CBS on EcoAds,” said Mark Harland, regional marketing manager for Chevrolet.
The TTF helped us plant 10 trees in the park to add to our green-energy and environmentally friendly upgrades, including:
- A sustainable garden around the playground
- Energy-efficiency and water conservation measures in the new ballpark concession and restroom facility, including solar panels on the rooftop
- Signage to educate park visitors about the benefits of these eco-friendly measures, including 30 percent energy savings and 20 percent water savings
Arlington Mayor Pro Tempore Lana Wolff was also out at the dedication ceremony to introduce the Chevrolet Diamonds & Dreams program, which in 2011 will award 20 field renovations to little leagues nationwide. Make sure to register your favorite youth baseball team before May 31st to be entered to win.
