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.
Segregating waste as wet and dry makes recycling easier. There are wet and dry waste bins at Chinnaswamy Stadium for segregation. Challengers, the next time you visit the stadium, stump the right bin! #CleanSweep #BattingForThePlanet #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/uHpHQXRQlg— Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 6, 2019
Join the RCB team on the #GameForGreen journey as we campaign to recycle, reuse and reduce waste. The large amount of waste generated each day can be converted into valuable resource, when segregated & recycled. Challengers, let’s not make a total waste of our waste! #CleanSweep pic.twitter.com/J6JiwfPWMe— Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 6, 2019
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.
One of our longest running fan associations is taking this step towards a greener & cleaner city, involving as many young Challengers as possible.— Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 7, 2019
Kudos to @rcbfanarmy for organising this, teaching these kids a valuable lesson, and creating a new experience for them! #playBold https://t.co/H6PKHcsb77
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.”
Imagine a stadium left with no trace of litter. Fans clean up after themselves and dispose trash in the right dustbin before leaving. Together we can make this a reality. Let’s make a #CleanSweep for a clean, green, sustainable environment. #BattingForThePlanet #PlayBold pic.twitter.com/ucUfZL86wp— Royal Challengers (@RCBTweets) April 7, 2019

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.
