Detroit Lions Matthew Stafford Practicing in Green
All the Detroit Lions quarterbacks including their starter Matthew Stafford, will be sporting bright green jerseys in tonight’s practice. Is it because green goes so well with Stafford’s eyes? Maybe so, however, the quarterbacks will be wearing jerseys made from 21 recycled plastic bottles.

As part of a promotion of their own recycling campaign, Lions president Tom Lewand had this to share about Repreve (via ESPN.com).
This initiative is a reflection of the Ford family’s commitment to leading in the area of sustainability. As an example, through our partnership with Repreve, we will be expanding to 500 recycling bins throughout Ford Field, making it easy for fans and guests to make the smart throw.
Dedicated to their own campaign, the Lions have the goal of recycling every piece of trash they are able to over the season.
The jersey actually looks pretty nice and green happens to be my favorite color.
