SMALL CREW HUGE SUCCESS – Union Island Cleanup Project


The Union Island Cleanup Project is the Brainchild of “Zoe”, proprietor of the Snack Shack on Union Island.

Today (August 28th) marks the start of what she hopes to be a regular cleanup exercise targeting different sections of the Island.


Over 50 large garbage bags of various litter (plastic, bottles esp oil bottles, straws, bottle caps, ropes, nets, keys, hard plastic, shoes, styrofoam boxes and other trash) were collected along the sea shore. The cleanup effort started at the Kite Beach and the crew worked their way down to the Ablo Beach.



Zoe explained that she came up with the idea because she saw it necessary that the community came together to clean up the Island because it is important not only for the residents but also for tourism. She explained that it is also necessary to keep the coastline clean so that turtles and fishes can be protected.


Zoe would like to see more bins around the Island so that persons can properly dispose of their garbage, she also recommends more education in schools and other institutions on keeping the environment clean.

She would like to host the Union Island Cleanup on a regular basis with even more persons involved.


The Union Island Cleanup Project is hosted by the Snack Shack in collaboration with partners, Jt Pro Center, The Salty Girl, Sustainable Grenadines Inc. (Susgren) and Radio Grenadines.
