WASTE MANAGEMENT INITIATIVE
SRI LANKA HAS MANY RELIGIOUS EVENTS THAT SEE MILLIONS OF PEOPLE GATHER THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
MILLIONS IN PLASTIC BOTTLE WASTE IS GENERATED FROM THESE GATHERINGS
With a lack of infrastructure and eco-education, Sri Lanka often sees thousands of carelessly discarded bottles daily in these events. This tarnishes the holy significance of our religious sites and contributes to the global plastic waste problem.
WE BUILT COLLECTION BINS IN ALL THESE LOCATIONS
After a survey of the issue, we realized that the root of the problem stemmed from a lack of proper collection areas. Without these, even the most eco-conscious person has no place to put their waste. We fixed that by creating and maintaining collection bins at each religious site.
