Janashakthi marks World Environment Day

Janashakthi and Think Green marked World Environment Day by collecting e-waste through various drop-off points in Colombo.


Janashakthi officials hand over e-waste to the Think Green team.

Think Green also conducted an awareness program for all senior associates of Janashakthi.

Every electronic device is made with an inter circuit board, which has to be disposed in a responsible manner when it becomes electronic waste.

Over 300,000 CPU systems are imported to Sri Lanka annually and the rate is growing rapidly. Most of the CPUs are used for only three years. There are two million mobile phones imported annually and all become e-waste with time and need a proper disposal mechanism.

Over 70 percent of e-waste is toxic and is a cause for water pollution when released to the environment. It is our responsibility to dispose e-waste in an environment-friendly manner. It should not be used for land filling which will have adverse health effects, Muthuramalingam said.
