The theme of Earth Day 2018 was ‘End Plastic Pollution’ and keeping this in mind, Shangri-La's Hambantota Golf Resort & Spa - CSR team focused on fundamentally changing human attitude and behavior about plastic and the reduction of plastic pollution. Therefore, SLHT organized an exhibition on 21st and 22nd April 2018 at SLHT Eco-Center. The CSR team coordinated executed this as a joint project with ‘Waste for Life’ a group focused on recycling plastic waste. The exhibition included products which were made out of banana fiber and polythene. The exhibition helped guests to get ideas about how they can reduce their polythene consumption and how they can re-use polythene in a different manner. The guests were very excited about the exhibition and the concept of reusing polythene.
