The Nature Foundation St Maarten is fighting plastic pollution through the ‘Reduce & Reuse St Maarten’ project, which teaches and encourages residents, children and businesses to reduce their plastic waste output and clean-up the environment.

Residents can easily reduce their single-use plastic pollution by following these 5 easy but impactful steps:

  1. Say no to single-use plastic products: straws, bags, cups and disposable cutlery.
  2. Carry a reusable shopping bag, water bottle, spork and cup.
  3. Use and choose biodegradable alternatives.
  4. Buy and ask for unpacked vegetables and fruits.
  5. Lobby businesses to use less plastic and spread the word!
