GO GREEN - Its ur turn now !!!!
Lets start from the basics , this is not for fun , but for thought .. please do go through the below points. The purpose of Green is what we need you to think about. Not just planting trees for fun
As a fan Advisory board member my friends and co members are working hard on various issues like blogging , contests , meet ups and etc. I am interested in Go Green initiated by the RCB . Go Green does not mean only planting trees , watering them and just like that cutting them unnecessarily. Its our duty to keep our country clean and neat . As initiated by the RCB we have lots of contests lined up from the Go Green team and we need your support
GROWING TREES AND THEIR EFFECTS : THE BASICS:
1.Trees clean the soil :
The term phytoremediation is a fancy word for the absorption of dangerous chemicals and other pollutants that have entered the soil. Trees can either store harmful pollutants or actually change the pollutant into less harmful forms. Trees filter sewage and farm chemicals, reduce the effects of animal wastes, clean roadside spills and clean water runoff into streams.
2. Trees Control Noise Pollution :
Trees muffle urban noise almost as effectively as stone walls. Trees, planted at strategic points in a neighborhood or around your house, can abate major noises from freeways and airports.
3. Trees Slow Storm Water Runoff :
Flash flooding can be dramatically reduced by a forest or by planting trees. One Colorado blue spruce, either planted or growing wild, can intercept more than 1000 gallons of water annually when fully grown. Underground water-holding aquifers are recharged with this slowing down of water runoff.
4. Trees Are Carbon Sinks :
To produce its food, a tree absorbs and locks away carbon dioxide in the wood, roots and leaves. Carbon dioxide is a global warming suspect. A forest is a carbon storage area or a "sink" that can lock up as much carbon as it produces. This locking-up process "stores" carbon as wood and not as an available "greenhouse" gas.
5. Trees Clean the Air :
Trees help cleanse the air by intercepting airborne particles, reducing heat, and absorbing such pollutants as carbon monoxide, sulfur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide. Trees remove this air pollution by lowering air temperature, through respiration, and by retaining particulates.
6. Trees Shade and Cool :
Shade resulting in cooling is what a tree is best known for. Shade from trees reduces the need for air conditioning in summer. In winter, trees break the force of winter winds, lowering heating costs. Studies have shown that parts of cities without cooling shade from trees can literally be "heat islands" with temperatures as much as 12 degrees Fahrenheit higher than surrounding areas.
7. Trees Act as Windbreaks :
During windy and cold seasons, trees located on the windward side act as windbreaks. A windbreak can lower home heating bills up to 30% and have a significant effect on reducing snow drifts. A reduction in wind can also reduce the drying effect on soil and vegetation behind the windbreak and help keep precious topsoil in place.
Many more . These are the facts as u know from ur very begining . New season , new start fresh start fro Go Green .
Fan contribution :
Apart from the club activities as a fan of RCB .... U play a major role in making our club more than a club . Create new ideas and think different .... spread awareness of Go Green in your school , colleges and ur work place . RCB guarentees full support and contribution from the management side.
mail id. You will be rewarded and keep thinking the Environment aspects as u play the game of cricket . Ideas regarding the logo of go green , any new slogans for go green ( currently game for green ) ....Fan support drives RCB ...... Creating a green clean place is in your hands now. Brainstorm and get new ideas what ever it may be .... whether it can or cannot be implemented is secondary, think of our Environment .... spend some time to change the ethics . Its your turn now. Anything you find different which is new and refreshing are welcome. Visit places , complaints , causes , effects and their implementation in detail can be sent in a neat way . Make your contribution ... feel proud to be a RCB fan .
Any idea which you think which can be introduced and can change the Environment aspect are always welcomed from RCB . Keep your mails coming in .... Looking forward for new ideas and Green inventories from your side .
ITS YOUR TURN TO CHANGE THE COUNTRY , JOIN THE CAUSE -> GO GREEN - RCB CLEAN !!!!
