Polythene lunch sheet ban from today

The Ministry of Environment has decided to implement a ban on lunch sheets made from non-perishable polythene from today.

Minister Amaraweera said whatever the obstacles are, the lunch sheet ban will be implemented for the sake of environmental protection as well as public health security in our country.

He said this decision can never be implemented by the Government alone and it needs the support of all sections of the country, including the public. The Minister further stated that if anyone manufactures, distributes or sells lunch sheets made of polythene, the fine will be increased tenfold and all equipment used for this purpose will be confiscated.

The Minister also requested the support of all sections to support this decision taken to protect the future generation of our country.
