Learn how the laid back surfing haven in the east is empowering its community while conserving the environment.
First, we visit a waste management facility in Arugam Bay town where plastic bottles and cans are recycled with the intention of making the thriving surfing town waste-free. This venture provides holistic solutions for effectively handling plastic pollution in Arugam Bay.
We then take a 20-minute drive to a novel venture that has taken the anti-waste movement to the next level. Under this venture, traditional rice bags are transformed into stylish pouches, hand bags, laptop covers and many more products.. This social enterprise provides a livelihood for women in a local village where employment options are limited. With their skills, these superwomen are contributing to a worthy cause while supporting their families.
