The Ottawa REDBLACKS cut down a tree every year in order to slice cookies off of their touchdown log.And from now on, for every TD scored, they'll also plant a tree.

"It's a symbol of our commitment to sustainability," said Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group CEO Bernie Ashe. "This is a LEED ND site and we're very proud of the sustainability activities that we've had. We've been promoting active transport. We've exceeded our targets on the use of transit and transportation and this is a symbolic gesture as well."
