The world’s first mosquito repellent newspaper!

The world’s first mosquito repellent newspaper!

By mixing Citronella essence with ink, an inspiring creation has been made: ‘Mawbima’ a mass-market nationwide newspaper, wanted to do its part in the fight against Dengue, so they created a newspaper, where every letter of every word stops deadly Dengue mosquitoes from biting people in Sri Lanka. The same formula was used for posters at bus stops!
