The St. Louis Cardinals make it a habit to honor others before many of the team's home games. But Monday night, it was the baseball franchise that was honored.
The Environmental Protection Agency recognized the team with a plaque for their leadership in food recovery and recycling.
By composting leftovers, like old hot dogs, and donating unused, uncooked food to food pantries, the team has kept 2000 tons of waste out of landfills. According to the EPA, that’s far and away the best of any pro sports franchise.
