Green Match: A Great Success!!!

    8 – May – 2011, Bangalore witnessed a sea of Green!! Apart from winning matches, the men in red and gold turned out for the match against Kochi Tuskers in Special Go Green Jerseys. It was a gesture to show case the commitment of RCB that they had embarked in IPL3 to Go Green. Prior to the match against Kochi, UNEP video acknowledging RCB’s Green initiatives and sending out a Green message to the community at large was played in the stadium. The match was highly talked about across newspapers, media and radio stations. The match against Kochi was labeled as a ‘Green Match’ with the players turning out in Green and Gold for the match. The autographed green jerseys of the players would be auctioned and the proceeds would be used in the beautification of the Chinnaswamy Stadium. The entire stadium wore a Green look with fans supporting their team in green attire and waving green flags all across the stadium. Before the match began around 40,000 fans including the players took the following Green Pledge: I Pledge to Plant a Tree I Pledge to reduce My Energy Consumption   I pledge to save Water I pledge to use Renewable Energy Sources I pledge to go Green.                                                                                                       All the spectators and players wore Green Ribbons to support the Go Green initiative of RCB.Certain zones in the stadium were made as a complete NO PLASTIC ZONE. A Green Wish Tree was put up at P2 stand where guests and celebrities wrote down their Green Pledges on leaves and hung those leaves on the tree. The aim was to make the barren tree completely filled with leaves!! BMTC bus services were increased during the match to send out a message across fans to use more of public transport.. Fans were also encouraged to take Car Pooling services.   The entire Waste accumulated in the stadium was segregated into Wet Waste and Dry Waste for composting and recycling respectively. The Green Match was a part of a larger picture of ‘Go Green’ initiative taken by RCB.  RCB has been involved in several Green Initiatives like Tree Sapling plantation, Car Pooling, Solar Water Heater, CFL, Electric Vehicles, through fans and community engagement.       RCB by the end of June will become the First Carbon Neutral Cricket Team in the World. The Green Match was a great success for RCB’s Go Green Initiatives and for the RCB team as Times of India paper put it Red or Green Killing is Clean!!!

Forests are the lungs of the Earth!
Not only do they purify the air we breathe, forests store carbon, help in maintaining global climate as well as recharge our water sources.
Forests are therefore crucial for the survival of life on this earth!

Forests are home to some of the most unique plant and animal species and support a diversity of life forms. The loss of forests has pushed many species to the brink of extinction.
Forests are life support systems for the rural poor. Almost 90% of the earth’s poverty ridden communities depend on forests for food, fibre and energy.
Forests provide free services to all life – water, soil and oxygen!
As you read this, hundreds of acres of forests are being cleared and burned. About 30 million acres of forests are cleared globally every year! Almost 50% of the logging in forests is illegal. Deforestation causes 20% of all carbon pollution causing global climate change. Water sources are drying up and tons of soil is lost due to erosion. Flash floods and landslides are causing loss of life.

The time to act is now! Join us in our effort to save forests – Sponsor a Forest!
