A local organisation is doing its part to bring the message of environmental awareness to Barbadians.
In honour of International Earth Day, which was celebrated on April 22nd with the theme 'End Plastic Pollution', over four hundred reusable water bottles were distributed by the Sandals Foundation to students at the Christ Church Girls School.
Public relations manager at Sandals Barbados, David Hinds says with this initiative, not only will students use less plastic, but they will also learn about plastic pollution.
The Sandals Foundation will also be taking different environmentally friendly programmes to other schools they have adopted.
Mr. Hinds says it’s part of the Foundation's commitment to preserving the environment.
