By BBN Staff: The Caribbean Community climate change center (CCCCC) has closed off its plastic-free project in Belize.

The initiative saw the distribution of 100 drums to 14 high schools across Belize. 

The main objective of the project was to catalyze a zero-plastic policy by educating students on the impact of plastics on the environment with attention given to coral reefs, and the need to reduce use of plastics while promoting alternatives to single-use plastics.

CCCCC noted that the project was a collaboration between the British High Commission, Sol Belize Ltd.  and the Ministry of Infrastructure, Development and Housing. 

On Friday, March 5, CCCCC’s Executive director, Colin Young said that he was pleased to engage schools that are already involved in recycling projects.

Also speaking at the brief ceremony was British High Commissioner Claire Evans OBE.

In her remarks, she signaled the importance of cooperating with like-minded agencies like the CCCCC, noting that the Commission was “pleased to be part of this initiative that supports expanded learning on climate change in the school’s curriculum.”

The beneficiary schools who received metal drums are:

Our Lady of Guadalupe High School

Belmopan Methodist High School

Belmopan Comprehensive High School

Belmopan Baptist High School

Belize Christian Academy

St. Ignatius High School

Sacred Heart High School

St. Catherine’s Academy
