Help reduce waste

If we have 2,500 tourists arriving everyday and they stay for a week, they will consume at least one 1.5l bottle of water a day - that's.... (thinking) .... 17,500 bottles a week and close to a million a year as a conservative estimate. And that doesn't even account for the people living here. With burning in the open air as the only disposal option, you can start to see that we are living on a tiny island with a massive environmental problem. How about this as part of a solution?|66%3A2|65%3A12|39%3A1|240%3A1318|301%3A1|293%3A1|294%3A50
