Students of Ferris Primary School showcase brand new reusable water bottles they received from Sandals South Coast Environmental Guardians who visited their school last week.

In Jamaica an estimated 600 million single-use plastic bottles are used each year, many of which end up on the island's beautiful shorelines.

"With that in mind and until there is a more permanent solution to plastic pollution issues, efforts to clean up our communities and encourage Jamaicans to maintain a clean, safe environment is of dire importance", said Sandals Foundation.

This is what the Sandals Foundation Environmental Guardians retrieved from just one small clearing in the dense foliage along the side of the road.  

Environmental guardians from Sandals South Coast were doing just that as they once again took to the streets last Friday to clean up along sections of a main road in Whitehouse.

The team also visited the Ferris Primary School, where the students showcased brand new reusable water bottles they received from Sandals South Coast Environmental Guardians.

During the visit the Guardians shared a lesson on the dangers of single use plastic and what can be done to reduce our dependence on plastic after which they distributed Sandals Foundation-sponsored reusable bottles to every child in the school.
