The country has been listed as one of the highly polluted countries in the world, primarily due to excessive usage of plastic and single-use plastic items. Sri Lankans use an average of 20 million grocery bags, 15 million lunch sheets, and 10 million PET bottles per day, most of which end up in landfills. According to a survey conducted by CEJ (Center for Environmental Justice), only 5%-9% of plastics are recycled, and the rest is disposed of in landfills or incinerators. There is a high demand for corporations to reduce their plastic usage and carbon footprint, especially in the IT/BPO sector serving foreign markets, which can gain a competitive advantage by integrating sustainability into their roadmaps. The Zero Plastic Policy is designed to facilitate this transition and make your job easier.
