During our travel to Sri Lanka, we ended up going to a cineplex┬áto enjoy a movie. After the movie got over, as we were coming out of the hall’s gate, we noticed that everyone else was bringing out their popcorn boxes, soft drink glasses, and other waste.

It was heartening to see the sight. We have not seen something similar in the multiplexes we have been to in India. Cleaning our own waste is a natural practice and must be encouraged. It saves the time of the cleaning team and makes us more responsible towards the waste we generate.

If you know the management of a cinema hall, please share this thought. They can put waste bins outside the gate and show a message at the end of the movie for everyone to pick up their waste (just like they show to switch off our phones).
