ST. LOUIS – Fans of the St. Louis Blues will paint Scottrade Center green on Tuesday  when the Blues return for their first home game in over a month for a 7 p.m. contest against the Colorado Avalanche in the team’s second annual Monsanto Green Game.

All fans in attendance will receive a green Blues T-shirt, courtesy of Monsanto, in recognition of the company’s continuing efforts to protect and responsibly use the natural resources of the planet. And, on the eve of St. Patrick’s Day, the color will bring a touch of festivity as well as purpose.

Prior to the game, the Blues will honor David Backes and Erik Johnson for the silver medals they earned as members of the U.S. Men’s Olympic Hockey Team last month in Vancouver. Paul Stastny of the Colorado Avalanche, a St. Louisan and U.S. teammate of Backes and Johnson, will also be recognized during the pregame ceremony.

In addition, fans will be able to see the medals outside Sections 124 and 125 up until the end of the second intermission.

“We have a lot to celebrate on Tuesday, starting with the return of Blues Hockey,” said Peter McLoughlin, CEO of Blues Enterprises. “Blues fans should plan to arrive early to salute our U.S. silver medalists, embrace the green efforts of Monsanto on behalf of our environment and of course, the spirit of St. Patrick’s Day.”

The Blues launched their own Blues Green Team initiative last year in an effort to encourage fans to apply environmentally sound practices to their personal and professional lives. By way of example, the Blues incorporated sustainability methods into its daily operation, such as placing eco-friendly soaps, detergents and light bulbs throughout Scottrade Center while making it possible for fans to recycle their plastic bottles and aluminum by depositing them in recycling containers throughout the building.

Meanwhile, each desk in the Blues front office contains a recycling trash bin, and only recycled copier paper is being purchased in an effort to better manage company waste.

These efforts are being supported generously by Monsanto, which is committed to working with farmers to produce more crops while conserving resources like land, water and energy.

“We are honored to sponsor the second annual Monsanto Green Game because, like the Blues and Blues fans, we realize the importance of taking care of the planet for future generations,” said Lee Quarles, Public Affairs Lead for Monsanto. “We are committed in this spirit to working closely with American farmers, who are some of the best stewards of the land, as their livelihoods depend on it. Taking care of the land—while literally helping to feed, fuel and clothe the world—is foremost in their minds. We encourage Blues fans to learn more about how farmers are producing more and conserving more by taking time to visit www.ProduceMoreConserveMore.com.”

Tickets for the game are available online, at the Scottrade Center box office, or by calling 314-622-BLUE (2583). Groups of 20 or more can call 314-622-5454 for a group discount.
