Tailgate Recycling Program Returns for 2014-15 Football Season

image

Jul 30, 2014

The Panther Tailgate Recycling program is back for the 2014-15 season and will operate in the same way as it did last year. Tailgaters will receive a specifically marked recycling bag as they enter their chosen parking lot. As fans enjoy their pre-game tailgate parties, they are asked to recycle clean cardboard, bottles and cans. Before heading into the stadium, tailgaters are instructed to leave the recycling bags (and collapsed cardboard if not in the bag) at the curb to be picked up by the City of Charlotte’s Solid Waste teams.

Exactly How DOES Recycling Help the Environment?

The environment has become a central political concern for citizens across the world for centuries. However, over the last 50 years, environmentalist movements have helped shift public opinion, businesses, and governments to institute policies that promote sustainability and reduce carbon footprints. One of those policies is recycling. Recycling is a service that many municipalities provide as a public service or contract with a private firm. Recycling is also provided by companies who will accept products that can be recycled in exchange for money or some sort of line of credit.

IT’S A GUY THING | hot stuff for cool men

By Troy Adams

If you followed last month’s column…your golf game is better by now, you enjoyed a good cigar, a tasty summer beer and flashed some new style. You dominated June. Or at least you tried.

But June is gone. July is here. And new adventures await.

So you got some new clothes. But clothes can’t make up for bad hair. Not much can. So before we get started…head directly to City Barbers. Immediately.

(Take your Elevate magazine with you of course, as we have much more to discuss.)

How Strength Training Improves Endurance Performance

By Chris Ritter

If you are involved in endurance events like triathlons, obstacle courses or just running long distances, you’ll probably hear most experts say you need to do more volume to get better.

While it is true that you need to have adequate endurance to perform well in such events, it’s not the whole truth on how to best pursue personal improvement. I would say that getting stronger while you increase your endurance is the best combination to avoid injury and maximize your potential in any endurance event.

DEBRA’S FITNESS 411

By Debra Ann Kennedy, Lifestyle Editor

Fitness is such an important part of our lives. Many of us go through periods of our life when we get into our groove and hit the gym on a daily basis. We feel our best, look our best and keep the momentum going strong. Then, something happens that gets us out of our routine and we lose the drive to hit the ground running back into fitness mode.
