Sandals Resorts International bans Styrofoam at 19 Caribbean Resorts


Effective February 1, 2019, Sandals Resorts International banned the use of Styrofoam across 19 Sandals and Beaches resorts in Barbados, Jamaica, Antigua, Grenada and Turks and Caicos.

The elimination of Styrofoam complies with the legislative ban on Styrofoam in Jamaica, St.Lucia, Antigua and Grenada and the anticipated ban in Barbados which comes into effect on April 1, 2019.

Last year, Sandals removed single-use plastic straws, stirrers, laundry bags and gift shop bags across its resorts and has announced that it is now exploring opportunities to eliminate single-use plastic across its resorts by September 2019.
