Worst Promotion Ever? Seattle Mariners May Hold Free Compost Night

All of a sudden getting a team calendar or chintzy team windbreaker doesn’t seem so bad, considering that the alternative might be a bag of decaying organic matter, otherwise known as compost.

But this won’t be just any old compost—no, this will be special Seattle Mariners brand compost, made from Safeco Field waste, like discarded food, utensils, drink cups and packing materials, courtesy of Cedar Grove Composting.

The free-compost night was just one of the ideas put forth by the Green Sports Alliance, a group of six Northwest pro-sports team whose goal is to “reduce the sports industry’s impact on the environment.”

“We’ve had a culture of consumption,” said Scott Jenkins, Mariners vice president for ballpark operations.  “We need to have a culture of conservation.”

Not that I’m an expert or anything, but my suggestion to the Mariners brass would be to hand their bags of compost out after, not before, the game—unless they want to see LF Milton Bradley covered in their special Seattle Mariners brand compost.
