Pittsburgh Pirates Celebrate Earth Day with Eco-Rally Towels™ from PeopleTowels

Pirates and Waste Management collaborate on a sustainable ‘green’ fan giveaway on April 21st vs. Atlanta Braves

 PeopleTowels, the creator of the Eco-Rally Towel, the first environmentally-friendly, "green" rally towel for sports events, announced today that the Pittsburgh Pirates and their sponsor, Waste Management, are collaborating on this year’s “Let’s Go Bucs, Let’s Go Green” program for Earth Day.  On Sunday, April 21 when the Pirates host the Atlanta Braves,  all fans 14 years of age and younger will receive an Eco-Rally Towel, the first rally towel made of 100% organic cotton and printed with earth-friendly dyes.

By providing fans with PeopleTowels’ sustainable Eco-Rally Towels, the Pirates are contributing to a healthy planet. Unlike conventional cotton rally towels, organic cotton is not sprayed with heavy insecticides that are hazardous to humans, animals, and the environment.  According to the Organic Trade Association, conventional cotton covers 2.5% of the world's cultivated land, yet uses 16% of the world's insecticides, more than any other single major crop.  Fans can be proud to demonstrate their enthusiasm at all Pirates’ games with their “Let’s Go Bucs” Eco-Rally Towel and can feel good about its earth-friendly organic cotton.

“The Pirates are proud to partner with People’s Towels and Waste Management to offer this eco-friendly promotion as part of our celebration of Earth Day,” said Lou DePaoli, Pirates Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer. 

According Erika Deyarmin of Waste Management, Western PA, Our Earth Day partnership with the Pittsburgh Pirates and PeopleTowels fits right in to our overall corporate mission to maximize resource value, while minimizing — even eliminating — our environmental impact.  We are committed to a cycle of sustainability. When we use less, reuse more, and convert the materials we reclaim into new resources or energy, we improve business performance and reduce environmental impact.  At Waste Management, we believe that a successful business depends on prosperous people and a thriving planet.
