"Dems Work To Go Green in Charlotte"

"Democrats want their national convention in Charlotte, N.C., to have a big effect on the 2012 election and a small footprint on the planet."

"'We are doing a lot, on a number of fronts, to maximize the sustainable elements of everything we are doing,' said Theo LeCompte, chief operating officer of the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC).

'It has been a priority for us from the beginning,' LeCompte said in an interview about environmental efforts at the early September event."
