It’s time for the WM Phoenix Open at TPC Scottsdale. The largest spectator golf event in the world is also now trying its hand at being the most environmentally friendly event ever. This story from details the efforts, which includes a goal of diverting 90 percent of tournament waste into recycling and composting facilities.

In a quote from the story, Plotts tells, “It’s our environmental responsibility to continue to find ways to conserve natural resources and protect the environment, and we are hopeful that local golfers and tournament fans will embrace these types of green efforts in their own lives. We applaud the efforts of Waste Management and the Thunderbirds to reduce landfill waste, and look forward to supporting the Zero Waste Challenge in partnership with TPC Scottsdale employees and tournament fans during this year’s Waste Management Phoenix Open.”

Good luck to our friend Jeff Plotts and the crew at TPC Scottsdale… we’ll be looking forward to seeing how the effort plays out!
