Under Caritas Ratnapura we promote organic farming and eradication of the use of artificial fertilizer and pesticides. There are 180 families who are engaged in this project. We have organised a competition among the farmers to select the best bio-home garden. Our target group is the family, comprised of children and youth. This green concept has been instrumental in bringing together people belonging to different religious traditions. There are Buddhists, Catholics and muslims in our groups. We are very glad to join the green revolution of the UNEP. God bless us all and our planet. We can send you photos when our celebration is held on the 4th June.

Commit myself along with my family to cut down the paper consumption by 50 %, Water Consumption by 20 % and Power consumption by 15 %, fuel consumption by 15 % of the average consumption. Reduction in Paper Consumption by using electronic form as e-mail or soft copies, for hard copies use both side print outs, use of recycle papers for the drafts. Water Consumption reduction - keeping min opening of tap, use of floor cleaning water in toilets etc. Use of sprinklers for watering in gardens and not the tap. Power Consumption reduction by switching off the gadgets not in use. Use natural ventilation and lighting in place of air conditioners and light in house. For reduction of fuel consumption prefer car pooling, use of bicycles for nearby place visit or walk down to the nearby places. Keep vehicle in good condition through servicing- tuning, proper tyre pressure, following speed limits,
