Sri Lanka is a country which has 1340Km of beautiful beaches around the country. These beaches provide homes to millions of birds and other animals. Also, these lovely beaches attract millions of tourists every year to see and feel the beauty.
But due to human activities, most of the Srilankan beaches are polluted with polythene, plastic and many other garbage sources which are non-biodegradable.
Green Map Sri Lanka and I Am Carbon Negative are volunteer-driven nature lovers organizations under Big Hearts Foundation which primary activity to protect nature and educate the nation about protecting nature through carbon negative living and fair usage of the natural resources.
Both Green Map Sri Lanka and I Am Carbon Negative collaborate with Australian high commission, Australian Srilanka Alumni, Australian Defence Forces and several other volunteer organizations to organize this “Coastal Cleanup 15.0” event to clean the beaches from dumped garbage by the fellow nation.
The event is happened on 24th March 2019 9.00 a.m to 12.00 p.m at Mount Lavinia beach with the help of you guys. Our team was able to clean 2300+ kg of garbage from this cleanup.
Up to now, we were able to clean 17,000+ kg garbage from Sri Lankan beaches by 15 coastal cleanup projects.
We experienced that we need more manpower to clean up this coastal area which no one going to clean forever.
Hope you will join us with our future projects.
