It's Easy Being Green

Kermit the Frog once sang that it's not easy "Being Green".

But it looks like theme parks are getting into the "green" spirit by taking on eco-friendly opportunities.

Six Flags Great Adventure recently announced that their 15-story park icon - The Big Wheel, is being completely refurbished for the 2009 season with 7, 824 new energy saving LED bulbs.

After these bulbs are installed, it will reduce approximately 8.5 million pounds of carbon emissions from the atmosphere.

It's amazing when you realize that this is equivalent to removing 72 cars from the road or planting more than 2,850 trees!

The new LED lights will also be part of an animated lighting display which includes chasing rim lights and the blooming of the ferris wheel's iconic flower petals.

Should be a sight to see! Kermit would be proud.
