Sri Lanka is a destination that many travelers have on their bucket list, and for good reason. The country is home to a stunning coastline with beaches that are both picturesque and enchanting. But there’s more to Sri Lanka than just its beaches; its lush jungles are teeming with unique wildlife, and the island is dotted with historical Hindu and Buddhist temples that are sure to leave you mesmerized. As you explore Sri Lanka, the fragrances, scenery, and sounds will envelop you, leading you to a place of tranquility.
While Sri Lanka proudly boasts the title of Paradise it faces a huge problem which is the plastic pollution in the jungles, coastlines, and the detrimental effect it has on sea turtles. Plastic litter can be found scattered across many of Sri Lanka’s pristine beaches and natural landscapes, causing harm to wildlife and the delicate ecosystems. To combat this issue, the Sri Lankan government has implemented various measures, such as the introduction of a plastic bag ban and the establishment of a nationwide recycling program. However, the enforcement of these policies remains a challenge, and there is still much work to be done to educate people on the impact of plastic pollution and promote sustainable alternatives. These are some of the projects that Sustainable Clean Lanka along with our volunteers carry out frequently to reduce plastic waste in the island.
