- Background: ODEL's private souvenir label LUV SL was recently awarded the Melting Point Certification by the Sri Lankan Central Environmental Authority (CEA) for its innovative Aluminum upcycling project.
- Description: The LUV SL collects used aluminum cans in bulk, which are melted down, casted and converted into a range of attractive products such as jewellery, accessories and household items.
- Impact: Although Aluminum is the third most abundant element in the earths crust, the production and disposal of it pollutes the environment and consumes unsustainable amounts of energy. Through the project, the CEA and ODEL hope to spread the message that many lives can be improved by upcycling valuable waste like aluminum.
