World Environment Day is the UN’s most important day for encouraging worldwide awareness and action for the protection of our environment and this year theme of the World Environment Day is “Beat Plastic Pollution”.
Also this day considered as the “people’s day” for doing something to take care of the Earth and that “something” can be an effective action to make some awareness among the people. Therefore IEPSL along with Abans Group have decided to conduct a beach cleaning campaign aiming the World Environment day 2018. Plastic pollution is one of the greatest threats to ocean health worldwide. Despite society’s many efforts to properly dispose of plastic waste, beach pollution by plastic is becoming one of the main threats to many areas in Sri Lanka.
