Plastic waste: Saving the planet, one lunchbox at a time.
Sri Lanka, like most countries around the world, has a problem with producing huge amounts of plastic waste.
On a daily basis, many Sri Lankans use polythene ‘lunch sheets’ to wrap and transport their meals – and then throw the plastic away. This practice has become very detrimental to the environment piling on the rising plastic waste in the country.
But now a 17-year-old school girl, Tharushi Widushika Rajapaksa, has invented the ‘alternative lunch pack’, which is reusable and biodegradable – and as a result, could help save the planet.
