The Red Sox are a big part of life in Massachusetts. The Red Sox have already taken some good steps on sustainability, like installing solar panels to heat water at Fenway. But those lights at Fenway use a lot of energy, so it would make a meaningful difference if the organization moved to renewable energy. It would will help protect public health and ensure a safe future for our children. In 2015, Boston experienced 92 days with unhealthy levels of air pollution, which can force kids with asthma to stay indoors, off the baseball field.
Today, I added my name to a petition started by Environment Massachusetts to ask the Red Sox to lead the way with 100 percent renewable energy commitment. We wouldn’t want the Yankees to get there first.
