Green Cup Polo

The Capitol Polo Club has gotten into the green game. This year, they hosted the second annual Green Cup of polo.

"The Green Cup was the first event in the Washington area to be certified carbon-neutral by the Wisconsin-based Leonardo Academy, a non-profit that certifies events and groups for reducing and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions through its Cleaner and Greener program. The crowd — many of whom were twenty- and thirty-something Washington-area professionals — gathered at the club Saturday, dressed in their finest, and sipped ‘‘ecotinis” made with organic vodka and enjoyed locally produced food as they watched the match." From The Gazette.
