Not littering a way of life in Sri Lanka - S'pore
The solution to litter problem in Singapore could
be found in Colombo, Singapore's Environment and Water Resources
Minister Vivian Balakrishnan said.
Its streets were free of litter, even cigarette
butts, with no road sweepers or dump trucks in sight nor dustbins
along the streets, either. This included the area around the busy
Central Railway Station. Not littering seems to be a way of life in
Colombo, Singapore's 'Today' newspaper reported quoting the Minister
Perhaps our education officials could also visit
Colombo to learn how its schools nurture children to grow up with a
litter-free attitude, the newspaper said.
Sri Lanka's civic consciousness in this regard
seems superior to ours.
