With a little help from All-Star pitcher Felix Hernandez, BASF Corp. will team up again this year with the Seattle Mariners for their second consecutive season of Sustainable Saturdays at Safeco Field, starting with Saturday night’s game against the Texas Rangers. 

The Mariners and their fans divert more than 86 percent of game-day waste away from local landfills through recycling of plastic bottles and composting of food waste and food service items, according to BASF.

During each Sustainable Saturdays game, Mariners fans can view the MarinersVision video display board in centerfield to play the BASF Trivia Challenge. The season-long, 10-game trivia contest offers fans the chance to win a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2.0 with a year of unlimited data from T-Mobile.

This season, pitching ace Felix Hernandez joins BASF and the Mariners to challenge fans to compost at Safeco and at home.  Together, they will give away more than 10,000 “kitchen catchers” at an upcoming late-season game. The countertop compost bins urge fans to “strike out the landfill.”
