FLOW Jamaica STAFF VOLUNTEERS recently demonstrated their commitment to environmental health by removing nearly 100 garbage bags and plastic bottles from three of Jamaica’s beaches.
Activities were carried out at Sirgany Beach in Kingston, New Causeway Fishing Village (Dyke Road) in St Catherine and The Meeting Place Fishing Village in St James, ahead of the company’s annual Mission Week, celebrated this year from November 15 to 19. .
The activities also supported the Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) coast clean-up campaign.
“We were happy to support JET on this project as part of our own Mission Week goal of helping build resilient communities through environmental cleanup. As a company, we are committed to making meaningful and lasting contributions to the communities in which our staff members live and work, ”said Ceila Morgan, communications manager at FLOW.
JET Program Director Lauren Creary appreciated FLOW’s involvement in the cleanup.
“We welcome partnerships with groups like FLOW every year,” she said. “It is very important to remove this waste from the environment and the ocean before it becomes marine litter. We also need to recognize that everyone contributes to this problem and that waste that is not disposed of properly ends up on our shores. “
Mission Week 2021 is a company-wide initiative where Liberty Latin America (LLA) employees dedicate their time, energy and knowledge to positively impact the communities they serve. FLOW Jamaica is a subsidiary of LLA.
Employees join the Cable & Wireless Charitable Foundation, Cable & Wireless Panama Foundation, Jamaica FLOW Foundation, Liberty Puerto Rico Foundation and Fundación VTR to expand their reach and provide even greater support to the community through volunteer efforts.
