Eager hands join for a cleaner Mt. Lavinia beach (Pics)

A volunteer team of Colombo Central District Brigade of St. John Ambulance Association took part in a beach clean-up programme last Saturday (06) to remove plastic waste and garbage.

The initiative at Mount Lavinia beach was held to mark the World Environment Day which was marked a day earlier.

Around 40 members of the Colombo Central District Brigade joined for the initiative which was held from 8.30am  - 4.00pm.

Several instances of the beach cleanup are shown below.

The Colombo Central District Brigade  was among one of the collectives and organisations that have been conducting cleanups at the Mount Lavinia beach in the last few days as waste continues to be washed up ashore.

Last week, netizens were horrified and outraged as photos of the plastic littered beach emerged online.
