If you follow the Boston Bruins you probably already know a little about the lifestyle that Bruins defensemen Andrew Ference lives.
When No. 21 isn’t shutting down other team’s offensive attack, or angering Habs fans with an equipment malfunction, Ference is out there living an eco-friendly lifestyle. Ference can be often seen riding his bike to and from the rink, dinner, and other events.
The veteran defensemen is being recognized for his eco-friendly attitude as National Geographic is set to launch a 10-episode web series called Beyond the Puck.
From National Geographic:
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 web series is set to launch today on the National Geographic website. More information on Ference, Beyond the Puck, and National Geographic can be found here.
Here is the trailer for the first Beyond the Puck episode.
