The Sri Lanka Army has drawn a plan to provide Banana leaf to wrap meal packets, instead of prohibited polythene covers. The Agricultural directorate of the Sri Lanka Army has completed the initial research work of this giant project.
These lunch sheets can be used repeatedly. According to the programme, Army plans to cultivate banana trees which produce banana leaves only. The barren land under Army custody will be utilized for the purpose. The Army says the consumers in the country will be able to purchase banana lunch sheets shortly.
Central Environment Authority (CEA) banned the use of polythene lunch sheets, rigifoam boxes and shopping bags, with effect from 1st of September 2017.
