NEW YORK (AP)—From driving a hybrid car to installing solar panels on his home, Steve Nash always strives to be energy conscious.

The Phoenix guard hopes his friends around the NBA community can learn some ways to do their part in the coming days.

The NBA announced plans Wednesday for its first “green week,” a number of activities to raise awareness and funding for environmental protection. Green week officially begins Thursday and runs through April 10.

Nash, who started a recycling program when he played in Dallas, hopes the initiative helps others throughout the league to “just learn more and spread the word and the message, and get people more active in conserving and reusing and recycling.”


I'm pretty sure NBA players are down with the "green" week!
