St Kitts and Nevis: The St Kitts and Nevis Red Cross Society conducted a coastal clean-up activity in the Old Artisan Village. The mission was held in collaboration with Nevis Historical and Conservation Society yesterday.

Volunteers from different communities participated in the clean-up mission and worked as a unified team to accomplish this activity.  The cleaning mission mainly focuses on collecting waste plastic bottles and cans.

It will assist in protecting the island from environmental pollution and make the surroundings clean. The NHSC outlined that recycling plays a vital role in creating less environmental pollution.

It facilitates energy saving, less usage of resources, low pollution rates and creates more job opportunities. Recycling aids in utilizing all the resources properly.

The aim of the projects is to bring awareness among the citizens toward a clean nation. Reusing waste materials protect our natural resources for future generations without influencing present production.

“We conduct this annual NHCS coastal clean-up operation to keep our island neat and clean. We motivate our team members and the general public to participate in the mission so that we can do something to make our environment pollution-free,” Red Cross Society emphasized during clean-up mission.

The prime focus of the development is to enhance the ‘recycling initiative’ so that people can manage their waste effectively. It also outlined the ways the recycle the things for the preservation of the environment.

While conducting this event, the team educate their volunteers regarding the benefits of recycling for protecting the environment. The lessons also focused on the ways to enhance the waste management and recycling methods.

St Kitts and Nevis Red Cross Society

St Kitts and Nevis Red Cross Society was started in 1942. Earlier, it came into existence as a branch of the British Red Cross. Later, it obtained a separate identity in 1985 as a national Red Cross Society.

St Kitts and Nevis Red Cross Society initiates several social initiatives every year to bring social reforms to the island related to health, women empowerment, child labor, environmental pollution and many more.

As per the red cross society, cleanliness is not associated with home or surroundings. Several life-threatening diseases are related to environmental pollution; therefore, it is a responsibility of every citizen of the country to make surroundings dust-free.

Thus, it is essential for the people to participate in the cleaning drive to bring a positive and healthy change in the environment.
