Initiating Green Retail

In a bid to contribute to the reduction of environmental pollution occurring due to the wide usage of polythene, plastic and styrofroam, the Sri Lanka Retailers’ Association (SLRA) intends coordinating with the relevant authorities in order to initiate a green retail practice that could prevent this hazardous pollution.

Amidst the usefulness and convenience of polythene bags, it contributes towards the huge level of non-degradable waste which poses a threat to mankind, animals and environment.

We believe that establishing a green retail program in the retail outlets where the retailers can begin practice of refuse, reduce, reuse and recycle of polythene usage, this could become the initial step towards creating a greener retail environment in Sri Lanka.

In the meantime, we make a humble request to the consumers to begin refusal of polythene bags and bring your own bags while shopping.

SLRA ensures to continue working towards creating a greener environment and requests the support of the local consumers in this regard.
