The final phase of the project Harithalokaya was successfully completed on the 13th of May, 2017 with the help of the Dehiwala- Mount Lavinia Municipal Council. On this day, a total of 335 bins were handed out to the residents of this coastal belt. The bins were given as a perk for the residents to encourage them to separate garbage and to properly dispose of them.

Harithalokaya was the final phase of the club’s signature green life project; “Green Dream” and was organized with the main objective of developing a sustainable plan for proper waste management within the coastal belt, thus addressing one of the UNEPs emerging issues of environmental concerns; Microplastics.
