Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach, IndyCar Series look to go green
The Acura Grand Prix of Long Beach has waved the green flag on sustainability.
...“It is our collective responsibility to implement climate friendly and sustainable options, not only for large-scale events like the Grand Prix but also in our daily lives,” City Manager Tom Modica said in a statement, “to ensure Long Beach continues to be a safe, healthy and viable city for people to live, work and play.”
The Grand Prix, specifically, has implemented multiple measures, both this year and during past events, intended to minimize its environmental impact, Michaelian said.
Recyclable aluminum containers [provided by Proud Source Water] for example, will replace single-use plastic bottles this year. Fans can refill those or their personal water containers with filtered, city-sourced water at Long Beach’s “Quench Buggy,” thanks to the association’s partnership with the Water Department. Specialized bins will be placed around the concourse to collect reusable materials.
