THE GREEN TEAMGreen Team - Community Clean-up

The Environmental Committee in Seenigama, with technical support from PROViDE, has created “The Green Team”.  This is a program for young adults aimed at teaching the importance of their surrounding environment and give these future community leaders an experiential opportunity of community service learning.

Since their inception, The Green Team has taken part in creating a small recycling collection station for the village, numerous beach clean-up days, and biogas system prototypes using waste to provide methane for cooking.

To combat a huge litter problem in the area The Green Team also set up a”bag for a bag day”  where community members could trade their one-use plastic bags for reusable bags, backpacks and totes.
