Dirty habits


Share post:

VISITORS ARE TAKING to social media to talk about the dirty state of the island.

And the negative reviews are driving the gatekeepers of the Barbados Brand – the Barbados Tourism Product Authority (BTPA) – to step up  education and guilt trips to drive Barbadians to curb their filthy garbage disposal habits.

Chief executive officer of the BTPA, Dr Kerry Hall, made the comments as a clean-up campaign, spearheaded by the Clean Bim programme, removed 415.89 pounds of garbage, in an hour, from a small section of Warrens on Saturday.

Stressing that Barbadians should and must clean the island for themselves and then for their guests, Hall said the BTPA had been receiving the negative reviews from the visitors with whom the entity spoke and reading them on social media. (HLE)
