NHL Goes Green With Re-Useable Stanley Cup Bag at NHL Store

NEW YORK (MAY 26, 2010) — The National Hockey League (NHL) will replace 30,000 plastic shopping bags with reusable bags during the Stanley Cup® Final between the Chicago Blackhawks and the Philadelphia Flyers, it announced today. The commemorative bags, which feature the 2010 Stanley Cup Final logo, will be available starting Saturday, May 29 for a limited time to consumers who make purchases of $10 or more at arena shops in the two Stanley Cup Final markets – Chicago and Philadelphia – and at the NHL® Powered by Reebok store in midtown New York City.

“We believe our fans are just as committed to doing their part,” said Barry Monaghan, NHL Vice President, Retail Sales & Marketing. “And by offering a commemorative reusable bag, we are encouraging our fans to reduce waste by using it time and time again.”

The reusable bags are part of the NHL’s ongoing green initiative. The NHL has launched a League-wide green initiative to support sustainable living and business practices. NHL Green™ is a year-round commitment to making the League and its Clubs more ecologically responsible while educating our fans and raising awareness of environmental issues. For news stories and videos focused upon the League’s sustainability activities, tips for fans on how to live a more eco-friendly life and links to sites that will provide more information and resources, visit the NHL Green™ microsite housed on the league’s website, NHL.com.
