Bears partner with Pledgeball to reduce impact on the planet

Bristol Bears partner with Pledgeball, an organisation that encourages fans to make small lifestyle changes that, as a group of fans, significantly reduce our impact on the planet.

The semi-final play-off against Harlequins is a Pledgeball event: fans can make sustainable lifestyle pledges together as Bears fans. It is a challenge - what quantity of carbon emissions can Bears fans save?

Go here to make your pledge as a Bears supporter and to see the impact you’re having together (and to be in with a chance of winning a signed Bears ball).

It’s time for fans to demonstrate their collective power:

  • 6,606 supporters (the number allowed to watch this semi-final) simply halving their dairy consumption saves the same amount of carbon emissions as taking over 590 cars off the road
  • The Bears Twitter followers all switching to using a reusable cup equates to taking over 2,200 cars off the road

And their influence stretches beyond this, as the impact of them ripple out.

Katie Cross, Founder of Pledgeball, said ‘This is such a great opportunity to showcase the potential power of sports fans. As a collective, the Bears’ fans could really make waves. I’m excited to see what they could do and very grateful for their support.

As a Bristol resident, I am especially delighted that the Bears are involved and with such a game.

Fans can begin the movement that brings the change we need to see. Come on Bears!
