Eco Spindles in collaboration with Gunadamin Elephant House, the CSR arm of Elephant House recently conducted a special plastic pollution clean-up project to clean up Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada) – one of Sri Lanka’s most famous and scenic sites, sacred to all of Sri Lanka’s major religious groups.
The initiative, which took place on 17 February, is also designed to create ongoing awareness about responsible PET disposal and the benefits of recycling for a more robust ecosystem. The Adam’s Peak clean-up project is an important step towards responsible waste management and environmental conservation.
Along with Gunadamin Elephant House and Eco Spindles, the initiative is also being supported by the Maskeliya Urban Council, Seethagagulagame Grama Niladari Division, the Maskeliya Association of Merchants (Welenda Sangamaya), and local government stakeholders. All disposed of PET and other plastic will then be collected and recycled by Eco Spindles Ltd.
Eco Spindles CEO Recycling Prasantha Malimbadage expressed his excitement about the partnership saying, “It’s great to see the private sector working towards responsible waste management and creating sustainable solutions. This partnership is an example of what we can achieve when we work together to protect our environment.” The partnership between Elephant House and Eco Spindles, along with the support of the Maskeliya community and government stakeholders, is a testament to the commitment of the private sector towards creating a sustainable and beautiful natural environment.
