As part of ‘Kar CityKar’ campaign, Radio City addressed key concerns such as the plastic menace, water conservation, and the need for a cleaner environment. Through ‘Plastic Ka Endgame’ activity, Radio City RJs reached out to societies in Pune and more than 1000 Kolhapurkars in order to create awareness about the menace caused by excessive use of plastic. The RJs collected plastic waste from households and encouraged the citizens to use cloth bags instead of plastic ones.

Radio City RJs in Nashik launched the Clean Garden Garden Ho Gaya activity to encourage locals and social groups of Nashik, like Nashik Cyclists, to join hands in cleaning the gardens and keeping the vicinity clean.

Commenting on the campaign, Mr. Kartik Kalla, Chief Creative Officer, Radio City, said, “Radio City has a strong presence in 11 cities across Maharashtra.
