Please join us for a behind the scenes tour of the YUM! Center to see what the center is doing to reduce its carbon footprint and how that equates to real dollars for their operations.

Sean Langer, Director of Operations at the YUM! Center, will give us a closer look at the innovative ionization green cleaning solution he has implemented along with other initiatives which include:

  • A recycling program for glass, plastic, aluminum, cardboard, paper and more
  • A switch in lighting to energy-efficient CFL or LED bulbs in many areas
  • Newly installed smart valves on all men’s urinals, which save thousands of gallons of water each month
  • A program to purchase recycled-content paper products

After our tour, we will reconvene for drinks and socializing in the President’s Room with the Inaugural Green Drinks Louisville.
