The Toyota Center, home to the Houston Rockets and the Houston Aeros, is the first professional sports facility in Texas to become a certified green building. It's earned a silver certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. That's after making some changes, including reducing the amount of water used for landscaping and increasing indoor air quality.

Officials also started a green cleaning program and green community projects.
