Beachgoers are taking their bottles with them but leaving behind hundreds of bottle caps in the sand.

And officials from the youth organisation that has been overseeing the cleaning of beaches around the island are calling on Barbadians to be more careful with the small pieces of plastic.

Yesterday “citizen scientists” and the Barbados chapter of the Caribbean Youth Environment Network (CYEN) cleaned another set of beaches, this time along the St Philip stretch of the coastline. On Saturday, CYEN and different groups were in St Andrew, St Joseph and St John.

The problem, officials realised, were the number of bottle caps embedded in the sand or hidden among rocks and in the beach foliage. (HLE)
