Boston Bruin Andrew Ference is going to be starring in a 10-episode web series called Beyond the Puck on NatGEOTV.com, where he'll talk about his green lifestyle at home and on the road. First episode debuts this Thursday, February 16th.
Here's the trailer:
Though his taste in t-shirts is suspect, this is really cool and we're glad Ference's success on the ice is translating into opportunities to promote a green lifestyle off the ice. We'll be even more stoked if there's a reference to him being called Captain Planet.
From NatGEO's website:
Andrew Ference, an eco-warrior and NHL hockey player, offers a rare glimpse into his sustainable lifestyle in the new 10-episode web series Beyond the Puck.
But he is not your typical hockey player. Andrew's an environmental activist, a Stanley Cup champion, the husband of a former professional snowboarder, and father of two girls. He rides his bike to “work” and doesn’t mind being called a tree hugger — he’s just as comfortable checking opponents on the ice as he is teaching kids about composting in elementary schools.
Inspired by his friend, environmentalist David Suzuki, Andrew has embraced an eco-friendly way of life at home and on the road. He’s achieved the ultimate victory in hockey — winning the Stanley Cup — and is ready take on the challenge of inspiring others to care about the planet.
THE POWER IS YOURS!
