As you can imagine, much of the garbage that is found in Caye Caulker actually comes from the sea. Thankfully in the centre of town there is the Village Council crew that clean up this unsightly plastic from off our beach. However, in the less developed areas this unsightly garbage can build up dramatically and therefore a number of concerned locals have put together a task force to combat this pollutant!!
This motley crew was spearheaded by Sally Ringsred, Luciana Essenziale, Jane Peoples, Dorothy Bevereridge and Ellen Armstrong (and a few more I probably have forgotten and I apologize) – all naturalized Caye Caulker residence. They have grown in local support on the island and also have recruited a number of very helpful tourists who are helping them stem this problem.
88 West, the bar/ restaurant underneath Belize Dive Services lent their assistance by inspiring those who offered their time for the cause a free drink at their bar – a notable method of supporting this effort!
As you can see from the photos, this is indeed a worthy cause for our island and we are therefore very grateful!! The idea of the collection is to become a monthly activity and anybody interested to get themselves involved are very much welcome!
So we at Raggamuffin want to give thanks for those that donate their time and their hard work to making this island the beautiful attraction that it is today!! THANK YOU!!
