Making mas

plastic and costumes on the beach after the carnival

Environment Tobago hates to be the spoiler in this the season of the merry monarch but….. please people can we not use the sea as a dumping ground? The image shown above is mas garbage and plastic beverage containers on the Roxborough Bay. The photo was taken 30 days after the last carnival.

Even more. The guy in blue? An ET volunteer retrieving plastic from the mound.

We aren’t simply talking rubbish here, the implications are huge. According to a new report from the World Economic Forum and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation the world’s oceans will contain more plastic (by weight) than fish by the year 2050.
