Green Acres Nursery & Supply

When two homegrown and local companies team up, great things happen. In 2015, Green Acres Nursery & Supply and the River Cats teamed up to create the Raley Field Gardens. While the River Cats showcase a great product on the field, the Raley Field Gardens allow Green Acres Nursery & Supply and the River Cats to provide meals provide meals to local food banks and educate our communities about the benefits of growing a healthy lifestyle.



Commerce Printing Services

When you think of printing, sustainability rarely comes to mind. Commerce Printing is working hard to change that. From their 100% vegetable based inks to the recycled paper used for "The Inside Pitch" game programs, Commerce Printing goes above and beyond. A long-time partner of the River Cats, Commerce Printing uses biofuels for their fleet and utilizes wind power energy to run their facility.



Republic Services

Entering their 6th season at Raley Field, Republic Services has taken waste removal and recycling to a whole new level. To further their stewardship of the environment and help customers reach their sustainability goals, Republic Services has implemented a food waste program designed to divert waste from landfills and reduce pollution. The food waste will be sent to an anaerobic digester where it will be turned into fertilizer and low-emission fuel for the Republic Services fleet.
