Go Green for Crop Over

AS CROP OVER FESTIVITIES swing into high gear, two environmentalists are sounding a warning about the amount of plastic garbage left behind by partygoers.

In fact, they want organisers of the fetes, especially those held at beach locations, to “go green”.

Last year, a week after Grand Kadooment culminated at Brandons Beach, Spring Garden, an underwater clean-up removed about 73 pounds of garbage, consisting mainly of plastic bottles and plastic cups, from the sea floor and nearshore reefs.

On Saturday, before National Conservation Commission (NCC) workers could descend on Brandons, patrons at a fete held there on Friday night left it littered with plastic bottles, styrofoam containers and aluminium cans. (HLE)
