Columbus Tours Initiated a CSR Project of Beach Cleaning at Dehiwala/Wellawatte Area on 25th of Jan, 2020

Our oceans and beaches are precious to us and as a tour operator we value the natural beauty of our island and all the experiences that come with it. This year we’ve decided to take action and give back, starting with a series of beach cleanups.

We have chosen Dehiwala/Wellawatte because that coastal area was highly polluted with plastic, polythene, broken glass bottles, papers, wooden and sharp objects. We’ve collected those pollutants into garbage bags and were handed over to the Dehiwela Mount Lavinia Municipal Council for transportation to the dumping sites. Further, this task was supported by the Dehiwela/Wellawatte Environmental Police Unit and Coastal Protection Authority Sri Lanka.

All together we have collected around 93 Kilos of Dumps!
