Jamaica News: The Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) says it is looking forward to the Prime Minister’s planned ban on styrofoam and plastic materials.
Prime Minister Andrew Holness says its part of his vision to help preserve and protect the environment and feels a ban could go some way to achieving this.
JET in the meantime launched its own initiative to help safeguard the environment this week with the launch of a beach clean up programme, where 25 volunteers bagged over 280 pounds of garbage along the stone revetment on the Palisadoes main road, Kingston.
The beach clean up exercise is planned for September 15 and JET hopes it can attract 10,000 volunteers.
