There are over 200 professional sports stadiums in the United States, ranging from the NBA, NFL, NHL. MLB and etc. Each year these stadiums draw in about 65 million visitors. There are some sports venues that can hold over 100,000 people at a time, think about how much garbage that creates from 1 game. Waste management estimates that the four major professional leagues (NFL, NBA, NHL, MLB) creates about 35,000 metric tons of carbon dioxide annually from the waste of fan activities alone.
