On the 20th of March 2022, with the concept of GP Garments Senior Management, conducted a Beach cleaning event at Panadura Navro Beach location. The event was a stepping stone toward building a larger campaign against Ocean pollution in the country. For this event GP Garment Staff members, Department of Coast Conservation and Coastal Resource Management, Panadura Municipal Council and Panadura Senior Superintend Police Division participated and the head count was more than 120.
Sri Lanka is a beautiful island surrounded by breathtaking coastal areas. Unfortunately, because of immoral human behavior the ocean pollution has increased in a significant manner. Identifying the need of this, GP Garment beach cleanup comprised two unique features. One of the main objectives of the event was to raise awareness about plastic pollution amongst visitors and the general public and setting an example to the society, secondly in a pandemic situation like this, without isolating and ignoring the contribution we can give towards the society, to do what we can do in a different manner, to make a change in a pandemic situation as such.
