Barbados: Blazing a Trail for Sustainable Travel

Sustainable Travel International – A popular destination drawing travelers from all around the world, the island of Barbados attracted 713,000 overnight visitors just prior to the pandemic. Its government recognizes that as a developing state it must do all it can to protect its residents, natural resources and endangered species against the climate crisis. We see in this film Barbadians infectious commitment to sustainability including: Eco Sky Water purifying water from atmospheric generation, then bottling with 100% biodegradable, non-GMO corn instead of plastic, composted on-site; Dive Barbados Blue, one of two dive shops in the Caribbean engaged in coral reef restoration; and Coco Hill Forest, building community-based tourism where visitors help residents convert plantation monoculture by planting native tree and plant species, like ginger, cocoa, mangoes, and turmeric.
