SANDALS FOUNDATION COMMEMORATES INTERNATIONAL COAST CLEAN UP DAY WITH JENNINGS STUDENTS
Friday 23rd September 2011
 
Sandals Foundation Green Team Members and Jennings Secondary Students gather around the garbage they collected on International Coastal Clean Up Day.
 
Thanks to a collaborative effort between the Sandals Foundation, the Environment Division and Jennings Secondary School, Ffrye’s Beach got a much needed clean up on Saturday, September 17. In commemoration of the 25th Anniversary of International Coastal Clean Up Day, third and fifth formers from Jennings Secondary school woke up early on Saturday morning to join the Sandals Foundation’s Green Team at Ffryes beach. Participants were given gloves and garbage bags as they partnered up and picked up trash and debris.
 
Environment Education Officer Arica Hill was delighted by the response of the students and said, “These youth are environmentally aware and they are making the conscious decision to impact their surroundings in a positive way.” Sandals Representative Andrea Marshall echoed her sentiments and commented, “The Sandals Foundation makes a concerted effort to engage in educational, environmental and community initiatives in order to transform the lives of Caribbean people. This is an opportunity for students to gain practical knowledge while enjoying the great outdoors.” 
 
International Coastal Clean Up Day is the world’s largest volunteer effort for ocean health. Over the past 25 years, more than 18 million volunteers have picked up 145 million pounds of trash in order to protect marine life. This year, various community groups in Antigua and Barbuda got together and cleaned several beaches across the nation.
