Sri Lanka has a serious problem with garbage. Many places in the country do not have any system for picking up or recycling the garbage and there is few public rubbish bins. This leads to a bad attitude where garbage is thrown anywhere. When “Save Sri Lanka” and "Greener Galle” arranged the great Galle beach clean up, the members of NewUse did not need to wonder how they should spend this Saturday.

It was sad to see the big amount of garbage at the beautiful beaches, but positive to see all the people attending and how much cleaner the beach looked after some hours of work.
