Corporate staff of Chefette Restaurants, joined hundreds of volunteers who participated in the Clean Up Campaign on Saturday 15th September 2018. The group was eager to be involved in the island wide Clean Up and collected 90 pounds of municipal waste from the Rockley Beach location. This will undoubtedly spread the message of responsible disposal to their families and friends as well as contribute positively to the Barbados’ beautification strategies going forward.
Ann Harding, Project Manager at the Future Centre Trust said “ Chefette has been a frequent and much appreciated sponsor of Future Centre Trust programmes for some years. Chefette has provided many vouchers for use as prizes in a variety of our programmes, catering for the Clean Up Barbados sessions with Group Leaders, and also as a team participating in Clean Up Barbados. This relationship means a great deal to the Future Centre Trust, and we appreciate the open and ongoing dialog we have with Chefette regarding improvements to the environmental impacts of Chefette's product packaging and its customers waste management habits. Chefette is a very important component in the average Barbadian lifestyle, so what Chefette does to protect the environment can have a significant impact. We look forward to working together with Chefette to continue our work to educate, conserve, protect.”
Advertising Manager of Chefette, Lisa Carter said “we are pleased to assist in the efforts to clean up our environment, especially our beaches. The staff decided to give of their time to help protect our beaches. Maintaining a clean community increases the quality of life for everyone. We intend to continue our relationship with The Future Centre Trust and look forward to our participation again next year.”
In addition to a plaque donated for the group collecting the most garbage, Chefette also donates food items and vouchers which will be used at the Clean Up Barbados 2018 Post Event meeting on Friday 21st September at the Fisheries Complex, Hincks Street at 6:00 pm.
