GREAT BAY – The St. Maarten Hospitality and Trade Association (S.H.T.A.) donated $1, 000 towards the yearly International Coastal Cleanup organized by the St. Maarten Pride Foundation for the sixth consecutive year recently. The money is given so that the foundation can buy garbage bags, gloves, rakes and other equipment at Kooyman, which has also donated $500.

“SHTA is proud to be part of the ICC that takes place on Saturday September 17 at Mullet Bay Beach, as it recognizes the importance to continue to educate the people of St. Maarten on the fact quotecorner.com/prednisone.html that littering is a huge threat to the environment and our Tourism Industry,” the association’s executive director Valya Pantophlet said.

“S.H.T.A calls on all on the community to come out on Saturday September 17th to join in on the International Coastal Cleanup at Mullet Bay Beach from 7:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.,” Pantophlet added.

The money came from the SHTA’s Dollar A Day Fund which was established in 2005 and funded by Sonesta Maho, Sonesta Great Bay, Divi Little Bay, Oyster Bay Beach Resort, La Vista Resort, Turquoise Shell Inn, L’Esperance Hotel, Royal Islander Club and Princess Heights.
