GHTA And GSWMA Join Forces To Combat Plastic Pollution On Earth Day

PR – As part of their shared commitment to environmental  sustainability, the Grenada Hotel and Tourism Association (GHTA) and the Grenada Solid Waste  Management Agency (GSWMA) are pleased to announce the signing of a Memorandum of  Understanding (MOU) aimed at enhancing recycling efforts for plastic waste across Grenada. The MOU, signed on Earth Day 2024, solidifies a partnership between GHTA and GSWMA to  address the pressing issue of plastic pollution in Grenada. Under this agreement, GHTA pledges to  assist in the bulk collection of plastic waste from member hotels, facilitating its transportation to  the Queens Park collection site managed by GSWMA. 

“GHTA is proud to collaborate with GSWMA in this important initiative to tackle plastic pollution,”  said Ms. Arlene Friday, CEO of GHTA. “By working together, we can make a significant impact in  preserving the natural beauty of Grenada and safeguarding our environment for future  generations.” 

In support of this partnership, GHTA encourages member hotels in need of assistance with waste  collection to reach out for more information. Through this collaboration, GHTA aims to streamline  the process of plastic waste disposal and contribute to a cleaner, greener Grenada. “We are excited to partner with GHTA in our ongoing efforts to manage waste effectively,” stated  Mr. Lyndon Robertson, CEO of GSWMA. “This collaboration underscores the importance of public private partnerships in addressing environmental challenges. Together, we can achieve  sustainable solutions for our island.” Permanent Secretary of Climate Resilience, Ms. Peron  Johnson added, “It’s great to see such significant partnerships like this and hopes to see even  more in the future.” 

As Grenada celebrates Earth Day 2024, GHTA and GSWMA invite the community to join them in  their commitment to environmental stewardship. Together, let us take proactive steps towards a  more sustainable future for Grenada and beyond. For more information on how to participate in this  initiative, please contact GHTA at info@ghta.org.
