Ingeo helps to give the environment a sporting chance
Plastics Today
Over the past six or seven years, a quiet revolution has been taking place as the sports industry — national and international —has increasingly committed to environmental stewardship. As more and more information about the sheer impact of sports on the environment became available, the industry has been spurred into action. After all, as a 2012 report from the NRDC, aptly entitled "Game Changer", pointed out: "Hundreds of millions of people of all political, social, religious and economic backgrounds watch sporting events each year, and the global supply chain of the sports industry includes the largest and most influential corporations in the world. In fact, while only 13 percent of Americans say they follow science, 61 percent identify themselves as sports fans."

The rise of paperless ticketing: Could ticket stubs become a thing of the past?
Sports Illustrated
With the rise of paperless ticketing spearheaded by the Cleveland firm Veritix, which owns Flash Seats, a 2,500-year-old tradition appears to be dying a slow death. Tickets have been around for nearly as long as there have been shows or events, something evidenced by early tokens found in Turkey. Still, in the history of ticketing, there have been no truly disruptive shifts. "Veritix was founded to do nothing short of making history," Veritix CEO Samuel Gerace said. "I don't mean in the Abraham Lincoln sense, but in the basic definition of the word. We want to cause something to appear in the historical record that'll be evident for generations to come, or more accurately to cause something to disappear from the historical record that's been there for 2,500 years."
