"We set out to build a venue that would not only exceed expectations, but also push the limits of what was possible in terms of stadium design, fan experience, and sustainability."
- Arthur Blank
Mercedes-Benz Stadium was designed to be the most sustainable sports venue in the world, and was the first professional sports stadium to achieve LEED Platinum in the U.S.
3 million recycled cans = 1 Habitat for Humanity home.
For every 3 million aluminum cans recycled at Mercedes-Benz Stadium, one home is built on Atlanta’s Westside.

Join our commitment to zero waste and continued innovation around sustainability.
Straws shouldn’t last for centuries. Now they don’t. Our partner phade® has developed an innovative eco-straw that performs like a traditional straw but breaks down and returns to the environment in just a matter of months. While phade® is meant for composting, it will even disappear in a marine environment in the unfortunate event that it ends up there. See for yourself and enjoy during your next visit to Mercedes-Benz Stadium!
The Atlanta Falcons, Atlanta United and Mercedes-Benz Stadium partner with Novelis, the world’s leader in recycling aluminum, to create the “Recycle for Good” Program during all home competitions at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Every year in the State of Georgia, more than $70 million worth of aluminum is wasted in the landfill. Recycle for Good is a campaign that seeks to recycle aluminum to support Habitat For Humanity. For every three million cans recycled, enough money is raised to build a home on Atlanta’s westside.
To date, three Habitat for Humanity Homes have been built through this program. Fans can help support this Recycle for Good by depositing aluminum cans and bottles at the recycling bins throughout the stadium.
