Restaurant and hotel checklist

Hello friends please feel free to use this checklist to help your business / work space become more island friendly!

Name *
• Are you serving drinks in glass rather than plastic bottles? *
Plastic not only pollutes our little island and every single ocean around the globe but it is also toxic for our bodies. BPA is an industrial chemical found in polycarbonate plastics and epoxy resins. Polycarbonate plastics are often used in containers that store food and beverages, such as water bottles. They may also be used in other consumer goods. Exposure to BPA is a concern because of possible health effects of BPA on the brain, behaviour and prostate gland of infants and children. Additional research suggests a possible link between BPA and increased blood pressure. Serving drinks and water in glass not only is better for the environment and the island but also for our health and our kids health.
