That Bengaluru and most major cities have a waste management problem is nothing new. So, it is always heartening when influential people take up the cause and urge their fans and followers to do their bit. IPL team Royal Challengers Bangalore recently batted for the cause waste segregation and asked fans to ensure that they dispose of waste responsibly.

On Saturday, RCB tweeted that segregating waste into wet and dry helps in recycling and that those coming to Bengaluru’s Chinnaswamy Stadium should do so using the designated dustbins at the stadium. “Challengers, the next time you visit the stadium, stump the right bin!” RCB said.

RCB followed this up with another tweet on Sunday, pointing out that one of their longest running fan associations – RCB Fan Army – was supporting this initiative as well.

RCB Fan Army, along with 40 children from Samarthanam, an NGO for the persons with disabilities, and the Karnataka State Cricket Association conducted awareness about waste segregation at Cubbon Park in the city on Sunday afternoon. The Fan Association tied up with the International Institute of Waste Management for the same.

Royal Challengers Bangalore will play Delhi Capitals on Sunday. Using the match to further their ‘Game for Green’ campaign, RCB again urged fans to clean up after themselves before leaving the stadium. “Together we can make this a reality. Let’s make a #CleanSweep for a clean, green, sustainable environment.”

Royal Challengers Bangalore, led by Virat Kohli, has had a disappointing run so far and are yet to win their first match. With five games in the tournament already over, Royal Challengers Bangalore, which has stars like Ab De Villers, needs to be ruthless in their remaining games to book their chance for the semi-finals of the competition.
