University of Kelaniya has taken a policy decision to ban the usage of polythene bags (>20 microns) since 01 September 2016. As an alternative for polythene bags, Center for Sustainability Solutions has introduced a reusable bag with similar dimensions of polythene grocery bag used in the country. This bag can be easily folded and carried even in a hand bag or a trouser pocket. Bags are now available at landscape division, University of Kelaniya for a concessionary price of 50 Rs. for university staff and students. The order to produce bags has been given to low income groups in and out of Colombo as a University Social Responsibility (USR) activity.
Buy a bag. Say “NO” to polythene. Be a RESPONSIBLE citizen.
