Over 400 Pounds Of Garbage Cleared From Soubise Coastline By Volunteers

PR – The Sandals Foundation invited volunteers across Grenada, Curacao, Jamaica, The Bahamas, Turks and Caicos Islands, Barbados, Antigua, and Saint Lucia, this weekend to clear thousands of pounds of garbage from the regions coastlines-joining one of the world’s largest volunteer missions, International Coastal Clean-up Day (ICCD) marked annually on September 16.

The effort brings welcomed relief to the island’s marine ecosystem and the overall health of our beaches. Below are highlights of team Grenada’s clean up at Soubise, St. Andrew where 473 pounds of mainly plastic waste was retrieved.
