Greetings to all who call The Virgin Islands home! Today, June 5, in honour of World Environment Day, I’d like to level with you about a serious addiction that is plaguing The Virgin Islands, affecting not just our environment but our health as a people. It’s our addiction to plastics. Just how bad is it?
Premier of the Virgin Islands, Dr. the Honourable Natalio Wheatley is urging the people of the Territory to do their part to protect the environment by reducing the use of plastics and engage in recycling.
