ARSENAL ace Hector Bellerin has planted the first seeds after he promised to grow 3,000 trees for every Gunners win.
The Spanish right-back posted a snap on his Twitter page of the first set of seedlings, with trees set to be planted in the rainforest in November.
Mikel Arteta’s side have racked up four wins in the last two weeks which will provide 12,000 trees thanks to Bellerin’s honourable pledge.
The North London side saw off Southampton, Sheffield United, Norwich and Wolves in consecutive games.
But it had looked like eco-warrior Bellerin’s vow could backfire after Arsenal suffered back to back defeats away at Manchester City and Brighton after Project Restart.
Luckily Gunners stars got their act together to help Bellerin’s campaign to tackle carbon emissions.
The 25-year-old has partnered up with charity One Tree Planted and fans can donate to boost efforts in the war against deforestation.
As it stands, Bellerin’s page has raised over £13,000 and is over halfway to its target of funding 30,000 trees.
Fans have been quick to praise the charitable football star on social media.
One supporter said: “Hector you’re a legend. Don’t ever change.”
Another added: “Love this Hector. Truly proud to have you at the club.”
First set of seeding taking place. Ready to go into the rainforests in November! 🙏🏼
