Jamaica Environment Trust (JET) took its public education on solid waste management on the road this summer by staging its first annual Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica (NDUJ) Road Trip in partnership with Wisynco ECO and MegaMart. During the month of August, the NDUJ Road Trip made stops at MegaMart in Mandeville (August 9), Portmore (August 10) and Montego Bay (August 23) to promote plastic bottle recycling and remind Jamaicans about the recent ban on single-use plastic bags, straws and Styrofoam.

“The Road Trip was a great opportunity for us to distribute alternatives to single-use plastics like reusable shopping bags, straws and water bottles, and engage with Jamaicans on better ways to manage their garbage,” said Lauren Creary, JET’s Project Coordinator for the Nuh Dutty Up Jamaica Campaign. “We look forward to making it an annual event,” she continued.
