Press Release – GTA donates solid waste management items to Seawalls and Beyond Group

–    Issues strong call for everyone to play a greater role in keeping Guyana clean

As part of its programme of activities for Tourism Awareness Month, the Guyana Tourism Authority donated a collection of solid waste management items to the Seawalls and Beyond group to assist with their continuous efforts to maintain and clean the Georgetown seawall and its environs.

The Seawalls and Beyond Group has been making a number of strides in their efforts to promote this initiative. Volunteers who are passionate about the environment, with support from enthusiastic Guyanese have been able to transform the seawall areas, specifically in the vicinity of the Kingston Seawall bandstand. This initiative has since created a positive ripple effect around Guyana as a number of other persons have been taking the conscious effort to clean and beautify their surroundings.

They volunteer their time, energy and resources to ensure that they get the job done – not only to clean the area but to have it restored to its initial pristine, welcoming state. The GTA understands that this is a continuous effort and the responsibility should not lie within one group alone, but also with all of us as Guyanese.  As such, the GTA is calling on everyone to make a more conscious effort to form better habits that will restore Georgetown to the Garden City title it once claimed and keep our communities clean. The GTA will continue to raise awareness of and pursue a collective approach to keep our beautiful country clean and maintain Guyana’s position as a top sustainable destination in the world.

For more information on how you can be a part of this initiative, please contact Ronald Smith at  ronald@guyanatourism.com  or call +592-219-0093.
