Belize at World Travel Market in London
Belize is currently participating in the World Travel Market being held in London with representatives of the Belize Tourism Board promoting the country. One new and exciting project that was announced at the Travel Market is that of T-Shirts made from recycled plastic.
Check out this video posted by the Caribbean Tourism Organization where Andrew Wigmore, the managing director of Wigmore Media, talks about a project in Belize where they convert plastic bottles into T-Shirts. He explains how it's done, the cost and its impact on the environment. The innovative project is being launched in Belize early next year with potential of going global.
