On July 9th, the Zeroplastic Movement organized Sri Lanka’s largest anti-#plastic people gathering across the country, aiming to combat plastic pollution where individuals from various communities came together to make a positive impact.
This event was named as the #ZeroplasticTrail, which focuses on raising awareness about plastic pollution and its detrimental effects on the environment, particularly wildlife.
To strengthen their cause, the ZeroPlastic Club of Vavuniya University collaborated with the Hindu Buddhist Association to organize a mini walk.
During the mini walk, university volunteers and members of the community participated, walking from the University of Vavuniya’s Admin office to Vavuniya Town. Throughout the walk, they carried placards advocating for a plastic-free future and actively cleaned up the roadside, showcasing their commitment to environmental sustainability.
The students’ dedication to the cause played a significant role in the event’s success. Their genuine concern about plastic pollution and its impact on the planet demonstrated their passion for creating a cleaner and greener environment for all.
The primary goal of the #ZeroplasticTrail was to bring attention to the urgent issue of plastic pollution and inspire people to take action in their daily lives to reduce plastic usage and waste. By doing so, they hope to protect wildlife and preserve the natural beauty of Sri Lanka.
This event has been a remarkable example of how collective efforts can make a positive difference in addressing environmental challenges. The Zeroplastic Movement expresses heartfelt gratitude to everyone involved in the #ZeroplasticTrail and extends a sincere thank you to all those supporting their cause to tackle plastic pollution.
Through these proactive steps and ongoing initiatives, they strive to create a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future for Sri Lanka and beyond.
