PHOTOS: End result of our nastiness


Below are photos submitted by a loyal reader

Do we love our beautiful country? If we do, then we need to keep it clean. Stop dumping rubbish everywhere.

These are photos of a bay in Castries, near Tapion. This is where some of the products of our nasty habit ends up after heavy rains.

  1. I hope this photo shines light on a serious problem we people of St Lucia have this one is not government but is US to stop being nasty because I watch people throw garbage on the ground NEXT to a bin all the time.

  2. NO PRIDE in our surroundings! The stench is unbecoming too. Environmental hazard zone indeed. I'm assuming these showed up after heavy rains?

  3. I am shocked out how people spoil this beautiful island. Myself and my kids often go out and pick litter up around the community, my kids even tell others including adults not to litter, some pick it back up (very few) most just choops and some unbelievably say "well someone will pick it up!" We need to stop this! the times I speak to tourists and they say, beautiful place shame about the rubbish! I have lived in Europe where rubbish collection in some areas is once every two weeks, not twice a week, and there is little, to no rubbish on the streets, people take a pride in their surroundings and we as a nation should too.

  4. While I do agree that we St. Lucians need to take pride and keep our country clean, I also believe that if it affects our immediate environment we should make the extra effort. I say so because there are a number of fishermen who moore their boats along this coast line at least they too can put a plan together to help maintain cleanliness.

  5. Some of us are so used to this that it no longer offends our sense of cleanliness. It is a definite turn off for those of us who care about the survival of this country, as opposed to the scores of our two-party scoundrels and villainous politicians.

  6. I was even thinking of getting a crew to clean up this place. It is a shame for people living in that mess. Especially those fisher folks.

  7. For years that place has been like that, at times worse than others. Clearly this is one of those worse times. Its horrid. Any clubs willing to do clean up activity? Pathfinders hire a boat! And Lucians, let's all clean up our act.

  8. Oh my. I wanted to take a picture of this place to post it on social media to show how Some of us are so Nasty. Unfortunately, this reflects on us all and when foreigners speak about this they will generalize. Littering is an offence and look at this. Some laws need to be enforced period.

  9. I go for long walks in the mornings to stay fit and healthy. My observation has been that we litter indiscriminately. There is trash all over the place but it seems the bulk is near the roadside leading me to believe that most of it is thrown from moving vehicles. Another observation: a high percentage of the litter was in the form of plastic containers (water bottles). I also do regular snorkeling and its disgusting to see plastic containers littering the ocean floor. I'm not blaming anyone but we can do better in St. Lucia.
