Take the Green Pledge, Wear Green to Chinnaswamy on May 8

Take the Green Pledge, Wear Green to Chinnaswamy on May 8

On 28th March 2010, When Sidhartha Mallya announced the RCB’s Green Initiatives and urged fans to join them for the noble cause; RCB became the First Green Team, in the history of cricket!

But it was not the color of the jersey. It was the mindset that went green. It was not the color of the poster, but the thoughts behind it. And most importantly, it was not a decision of the management, but the fans’ support behind it. And today RCB thanks all you fans for supporting us in this cause.

On 28th March 2010, When Sidhartha Mallya announced the RCB’s Green Initiatives and urged fans to join them for the noble cause; RCB became the First Green Team, in the history of cricket!

But it was not the color of the jersey. It was the mindset that went green. It was not the color of the poster, but the thoughts behind it. And most importantly, it was not a decision of the management, but the fans’ support behind it. And today RCB thanks all you fans for supporting us in this cause.

When RCB decided to Go Green there were two things which we thought were critical for its success. Firstly the reduction of the environmental impact and secondly fan engagement. The first one came from a long term commitment towards reducing our carbon footprint. But we feel the fan engagement and participation was more important simply because without it, the first one holds no significance.

Given our focus areas, we started brainstorming on the possible green activities, and came up with various Go Green Initiatives. All these initiatives were successful - courtesy RCB Fans.

Today RCB has reached a point where it wishes to take the Go Green Initiative to the next level and at an even larger stage. Hence on 8th May, 2011 in the match against Kochi Tuskers, RCB Go Green will take the centre stage and make the world aware about Go Green.

So what is going to happen on 8th May??

All the spectators will be taking the Green Pledge. The entire stadium will be done up in an environment friendly manner. Placards displayed by fans conveying green message will be covered by Set Max and the best one will win a prize. Mass commute after the match is enabled through BMTC buses; which the attendees can use to travel and thus contribute towards the Go Green Initiative.

All the players are going to wear the RCB Go Green Gear for that particular match.

Also we ask all the RCB fans to take the Green Pledge along with RCB, by wearing green clothes to the match. Come in hordes, come in numbers & Support the RCB Go Green.

RCB is Game for Green, Are you?
