Seattle Mariners’ Fans Can Expect A Trashy Giveaway
Most Giveaways that baseball teams will have for their fans are straight forward. Bottle heads, caps, shirts and the occasional mini bat. The Seattle Mariners though are taking their giveaways a step further. Fans who attend a Mariners’ game next season can expect to take home quite a smelly and ecofriendly gift. That gift…. is compost.
Fans will now be given bags of compost made from the garbage that they leave behind at the stadium. Your $10 beer, your half eaten $3 hot dog and all the shells of the sunflower seeds that you spit will now be given back to you.
“Think of it as taking a little bit of the ballpark home,” said Scott Jenkins, Mariners vice president for ballpark operations.
So basically fans can watch a garbage baseball team that finished the 2010 season with 101, and then take their own garbage home. It’s a win-win situation in Seattle.
