“Cricketers are heroes and role models for millions of fans, and
therefore are the right ambassadors to spread the message about
protecting the environment,” remarked Royal Challengers Sports Pvt Ltd
Director Sidhartha Mallya after unveiling the jersey along with former
India captain and RCB’s chief mentor Anil Kumble.

“The unveiling
of the Green Jersey is yet another milestone in our journey to become
the first carbon-neutral cricket team in the world by the end of this
IPL season, and symbolises RCB’s commitment to the UN’s World
Environment Day on June 5,” he noted.

Kumble reiterated the
Karnataka State Cricket Association’s commitment to the cause. “We at
KSCA have taken several steps in our bid to improve environment like
waste segregation system, procurement of wind power and bio-gas
upgradation. We are also planning to produce solar energy and harvesting
of rain water,” he said.

Kumble also disclosed plans to increase the capacity of the stadium, with possible changes to the entire structure.

“When we do this, our focus will be on having environment-friendly measures in place.”


 


Take a look at some of the RCB Go Green initiatives:


 

1) RCB have increased the number of BMTC busses for spectators to ride on them. They are also encouraging Carpool.

2) Distributing Green ribbons to the spectators to show their solidarity for Go Green

3) Some regions in the Stadium will be declared as no plastic zone.

4) An Idea tree will be put up where people and pledge for green and put it up on the tree.

This iniative seperates us from other teams.....Focus should'nt be mere profit......But, there must also be certain social benefits......
Now, we have reached in play-offs and in my opinion, now, we should wear our lucky green jersey
