ECOVIE Rainwater Collection Systems and Atlanta Braves Partner on Rainwater Collection System
Deal is part of bigger Braves ‘green’ initiative; ‘Green Night’ is May 11
ECOVIE (pronounced ‘eco-vee’) Rainwater Collection Systems (www.ecovieenvironmental.com), the Atlanta-based rainwater management company, is teaming up with the Atlanta Braves and Turner Field to capture, use and manage water for the 2011 baseball season. The 1,500 gallon, co-branded tank is being installed in Monument Grove at Turner Field during the Braves’ upcoming road trip. The announcement was made today by Atlanta Braves EVP of Operations Mike Plant and ECOVIE President Bob Drew.
“We’re taking several steps to make Turner Field, and everything that we do on behalf of our franchise, as environmentally friendly as possible,” says Plant. “Working with ECOVIE on this project could have a long-term positive impact on our water use, and it keeps the Braves and Turner Field at the forefront of green technology.”
“The Braves and Turner Field are leaders in the sports world in many areas, so partnering with them, in our hometown, was a very natural combination,” says Drew. “We look forward to working with the Braves to show other major businesses and organizations how to stay on the cutting edge of green innovation, and to expanding the partnership with the Braves down the road.”
The ECOVIE system at Turner Field will capture rainwater, and the water will be used for watering plants and landscaping, as well as for cleaning the outfield plaza at Turner Field. The amount of captured water at Turner Field is expected to exceed 10,000 gallons for the remainder of the 2011 season, and could capture more than 20,000 gallons over a full season.
