Toyota Center is now certified green

Thursday, June 03, 2010

The Toyota Center, home to the Houston Rockets and the Houston Aeros, is the first professional sports facility in Texas to become a certified green building.

It's earned a silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. That's after making some changes, including reducing the amount of water used for landscaping and increasing indoor air quality.

Officials also started a green cleaning program and green community projects.
