The Belize Tourism Industry Association has embarked in a four-day clean up campign for the entire island of Ambergris Caye. Sadly our little island is not so 'bonita' to say, there has been an increase of illegal dumping throughout the island, reducine the esthetics and charm of the natural environment.
The BTIA, along with several business and stakeholders, have come together "For the Love of San Pedro" to clean up as much as possible to make our island beautiful once more. Different businesses and groupd have donated their time and employees to help with the clean up. Day one kicked off in the San Pedrito Area, where a massive clean up of the "San Pedrito Highway" is taking place. Tons of garbage, inlcuding old household appliances and construction material are being removed from the mangroves along the road. The garbage situation had gotten so out of hand in this area that the garbage began to pile up on the road. Everything that is collected is being taken to the garbage transfer station.
Kudos to all those who are participating in the four day clean up! Thanks for helping to keep our Isla Bonita Clean!
