How Can You Help?
Please do your part to help reduce the amount of plastics and aluminum cans from entering our landfill!  The most effective way to reduce waste is to not create it in the first place.  When on island try to reduce or not use plastic water bottles and encourage your guests to do so as well. Water filter pitchers in the fridge and thermal cups truly help reduce our use of plastic water bottles. 
Unlike the mainland, St. Thomas recycles very little.  For over 3 years, EAST volunteers and other environmental groups have been diverting tons of plastics and aluminum cans from entering the area! Saturdays at The Market STT from 9 am to 11 am they collect recyclables from individuals who bring them in. If you would like to participate with this make sure to follow the instructions below to ensure that sort separation is done properly before arriving at the Market STT!
