Ricoh has released a press release stating, "This product incorporates the green symbolizing new life in the traditional GR black, just like creative green buds that are constantly sprouting in the dark night, which releases inspiration anytime and anywhere. Ricoh Imaging adheres to the original intention of bringing people the impression of images, and always shares the impression with fans and grows together with you"

The GRowING brand also aims to raise money for young people. For every product that is sold from the GRowING project, Ricoh has promised to donate 200 Yuan to "help young people grow up, so that young people can see a different world, embrace excitement, and grow". 

This isn't the first time that Ricoh has produced a limited edition version of its popular Ricoh GR III camera, as the Street Edition used stylish orange accents to differentiate it from the standard black camera. However this new limited edition takes it a step further with a beautiful new color-way and a philanthropic cause behind its new design.
