Supermarket network supports lunch sheet ban

The supermarket network in Sri Lanka has expressed its support for the ban on non-perishable lunch sheets made of polythene from August 1.

The Environment Ministry under the instruction of Environment Minister Mahinda Amaraweera has decided to ban the production, distribution and sale of non-perishable lunch sheets made of polythene from August 1.

“There is no need to issue a special gazette notification in this regard and although a gazette notification was issued regarding the ban on non-perishable lunch sheets made of polythene in 2017, it has not been implemented properly,” said Environment Minister Mahinda Amaraweera.

A discussion was held on Tuesday (27) at the Ministry of Environment under the patronage of Minister Mahinda Amaraweera with all representatives of the supermarket chains currently operating in the country regarding the ban on non-perishable lunch sheets.
