Former NFLer, Will Allen, on Sports ‘Going Green’

Will Allen, a college football star for Ohio State University, received All-American honors. He was drafted in the fourth round of the 2004 NFL Draft by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and also played DB for the Dallas Cowboys and Pittsburgh Steelers.

He was a panelist at the recent Green Sports Alliance Summit, in Atlanta. The theme for the 2018 Summit was “PLAY GREENER™ : Get in the Game” and focused on taking action that encouraged collaborative problem-solving to achieve sustainable change across the sports spectrum. Attendees engaged in multiple skill-building and problem-solving workshops to develop solutions that encourage environmental and social responsibility across operations, supply chains, and fan bases.

Rick talks to Allen about how athletes can use their name to promote change and eco-awareness.
