Houston Heat Goes Green

Did you know that the average metropolitan city recycles about 33% of its trash?  Guess where Houston falls? 

According to an article cited by the New York Times (June 2008), Houston has the dismal distinction of being the largest American city to recycle the least amount of trash -- 2.6%.  That's horrific.

Although the numbers differ depending on which report you read -- some reports are kind enough to say we recycle 10% -- the bottom line? Houston, we have a problem ... and it's our lack of care for our own city.

Houston Heat hopes to take action to help improve the city's awareness of this issue by starting the Houston Heat Goes Green Initiative.  We hope to spread and encourage recycling amongst our members and community through grassroots efforts.

As the Energy capital of the world, we need to be at the forefront of conservation and environmental causes.  So help Houston Heat keep Houston and our waterways clear!  Recycle!

Simple things HH members can do to go green:

  • Use reusable and recyclable plastic water containers rather than single use water bottles.  We all forget sometimes but please remember to recycle rather than just trashing water bottles.
  • Purchase scoop drink mixes rather than single serving packets.  It reduces wastes and is often cheaper in cost!
  • Recycle all empty sun block containers.  We all know how many of those we go through in a season!
  • Carpool to practice!  Get to know your fellow paddlers.  Invite friends, hop in one car and drive on down!
  • Properly dispose of used water shoes and equipment.  Don't just trash them!  As much as our water shoes may reek after one too many practices, please find environmentally friendlier ways to get rid of them; otherwise, they'll most likely end up in a landfill or floating in our waterways!
  • Paddle to work!  =P

There are hundreds of ways to go green and we hope our paddlers and those reading will help us in our mission.  Now go out there and recycle!
