Trash Pollution Control & Recycling:

Madulkelle Tea & Eco Lodge needs to do better Trash Pollution Control, Recycling and Composting to reduce plastic and non bio-degradable items.

Light & Noise Pollution Control:

While noise pollution is controlled to a certain level due to limited visitors on property light pollution is high.

Bio-Diversity Conservation Projects:

A community development and environment conservation fund has been setup by the management. Information regarding Environment Conservation activities are not available todate. Due to the close proximity to Campbell's Lane Forest Reserve and many large Estate land close by, there is ample opportunity to initiate Bio-Diversity conservation projects to help native species as well as educate the locals to protect the habitat.
