The march and slogans
Green LifeGeneration staff joined millions of their colleagues from across the world to support climate and justice in action in the ‘Global Climate Strike’ held on Friday, September 20. This event, held in Digana in Kandy included a walking exhibition by Green Life.
Green Life produces bags and other utility products using waste material such as cement bags, discarded cardboard cartons and strings. They engage a small staff from the neighbourhood in their works. A small office, known as the Green Life Generation Workshop, work towards creating an atmosphere of ‘green’ material’ for use. ‘The strikers’ as they identify themselves, had an awareness campaign at the Digana Upper Town junction and marched through the new town along the Kengalle Road, carrying slogans materials prepared by
them and holding them aloft with their noses and mouths covered to demonstrate breathing of the air that is contaminated with carbon.
The leader, Savanti Abeyratne is a graduate from the University of Liverpool and is now reading for her doctorate.
