The Los Angeles Galaxy (along with AEG), Dick’s Sporting Goods, Buffalo Wild Wings, Keep California Beautiful (KCB) and the American Chemistry Council (ACC) are teaming up to challenge Southern California soccer players to clean up litter in their communities and be part of an exciting program that rewards them for doing so.
“Recycle. Goal.” is a competition between local soccer teams that provides meaningful rewards for recycling. The efforts of these young athletes help ensure that cans, glass, plastic and other valuable materials do not go into the trash, but instead go into the recycle bin.
By recycling more than 3,000 pounds of materials, including more than 800 pounds of plastics, the Anaheim Impact girls under- 13 team from the Anaheim Soccer Association won Recycle. Goal. 2012. Overall, 30 teams took part in the 9-week contest. The participating teams collected more than 11,470 pounds of recyclable materials, including nearly 2,830 pounds of plastics. The Anaheim Impact girls emerged as the winner in a close race to recycle the most materials.All of the participating teams earned rewards from either Buffalo Wild Wings or Dick’s Sporting Goods. The winning team will also receive tickets to an LA Galaxy game and will participate in a soccer skills clinic conducted by the Galaxy.
