Sandals Resorts International (SRI), which operates three hotels in St Lucia, has announced that it will eliminate all Styrofoam from its properties across the region as of February 1, 2019.

The company, which recently eliminated single-use plastics from its operations, has said it will also explore opportunities to eliminate other plastics across its resorts by September 2019.

SRI currently operates 19 Sandals and Beaches resorts across the Caribbean.

The Jamaica Observer quoted SRI’s deputy chairman, Adam Stewart, as saying that as the company enters the New Year, it is “incredibly important” for environmental sustainability to remain a key priority.
