The halls of the CFC offices are looking a bit greener this month. That’s because the Boys in Blue are teaming up with local startup Green For Good this month and organizing more recycling than ever before on the Southside.
The idea was spawned from Startup Week CHA, in which entrepreneurs were invited to pitch ideas to the city for ways to inspire better recycling practices. Brian Wright’s Green for Good was one of four ideas chosen by the city and awarded grant money to pilot the program and assess the results.
The Green for Good concept is a threefold plan: identify fun, inventive ways to recycle in the home, school, and at work. Chattanooga FC is one of several businesses and organizations on the Southside that will be participating in the pilot program for the month of January. The club will be actively collecting aluminum cans, and the Green for Good team will be collecting the cans on a weekly basis.
Proceeds from the collections will benefit Habit for Humanity. Each participating business will compete to win a Green for Good prize pack, including CFC tickets for the 2022 season.
“It’s a really important program, and a great way to bring the southside together” said Jeremy Alumbaugh, Managing Director, Chattanooga FC. “We’re happy to partner with Brian on this initiative, and look forward to seeing how much aluminum we can recycle.”
