Each year on April 22, people all over the world celebrate and honor Earth Day. As an eco-resort built with a passion for the environment, we treat every day as “Earth Day” by protecting the planet’s natural beauty and resources and empowering others to do the same. But, we always like to do something extra special on this important holiday.
Beach Clean Up
To celebrate Earth Day 2014, Rosalie Bay organized a Beach Clean Up to keep the nesting grounds pristine for the endangered sea turtles who visit us this time of year. To ensure a strong turnout, we held our event over the weekend.
We were thrilled to welcome 25 volunteers to our black sand beach including locals, staff members and their families, and resort guests. The morning of the clean-up flew by as it was a wonderful time for all of the volunteers to have fun together. A total of 10 large garbage bags were filled with waste!
To rejuvenate from a successful morning’s work, volunteers were rewarded with a healthful lunch prepared by Chef Seraphine. Local ingredients from the Roseau farmer’s market were used to create a delicious fish broth accompanied with dasheen, plantains, green bananas and fish. Volunteers dined outdoors in the Gazebo to enjoy nature’s beauty.
Volunteers were also given a 2014 Rosalie Bay Earth Day t-shirt as a token of our appreciation for their efforts to take care of our planet. The shirts displayed our “motto” of Earth Day reading, “Earth Day Every day at Rosalie Bay.”
Thank you to all of our volunteers! How are you celebrating Earth Day 2014?
