INDIANAPOLIS – The Indiana Pacers, Republic Services and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful, Inc. (KIB) have teamed up for Sustainability Week!
To encourage all to be more environmentally conscious, the Pacers and Republic Services want to set an example as they continue to work to improve the environmental performance of the Pacers organization as well as help spread the message to fans. Sustainability addresses environmental conservation policies within the team’s offices and educates fans on ways they can lead a more environmentally-friendly lifestyle.
In addition, through NBA Green, the NBA has partnered with the Green Sports Alliance to generate awareness and funds for protecting the environment. The NBA is taking steps to be more environmentally friendly and will continue to explore ways of reducing its impact on the environment through community outreach programs, generating awareness among fans and greening its operations.
During Pacers Sustainability Week (March 18-25), the Pacers, Republic Services and Keep Indianapolis Beautiful will take part in sustainability efforts throughout Central Indiana that include the Threes for Trees promotion, Sustainability Night and Day of Service, all designed to support environmental organizations and encourage fans to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Threes for Trees Promotion
During Pacers Sustainability Week, the Pacers have committed to planting one tree for every three-pointer made during all homes games throughout the week (March 19, 23 and 25).
The trees will be planted throughout Indianapolis with the help of KIB and Pacers Sports & Entertainment staff. Together, the organizations will enrich areas where people live and work, helping to sustain the environment and provide a blue planet for generations to come.
