After marrying a native Antiguan and a University of Health S
ciences Antigua owner, Adedayo Akande, in early 2016, I deci
ded to leave the US for a more permanent home on the island
of Antigua. Throughout my visits to the island over the last 10
years, I was amazed by its scenic beauty but also by the beaut
y of the people who live here. I have always been welcomed
with open arms and have met so many incredible people along
the way. During my trips to the island I also experienced a not
-so-beautiful side to the island; the lack of recycling resources
and the amount of environmental waste that takes place daily.
I quickly realized that “Styrofoam” is about as common as a c
oconut on the side of the road. I knew there was more that I co
uld do to help this beautiful island STAY beautiful. So, I creat
ed ECO ISLAND PACKAGING!
OUR TAKE AWAY SERIES
When disposed of, our products will biodegrade within 60-120 days i
nstead of the typical “Styrofoam” container that will stay in our ocea
ns and on our land for 500+ years, and takes up 25-30% of the landfil
ls (and that’s not counting what is littered throughout our beaches an
d streets). Our beautiful oceans are filled with pieces of toxic “Styrof
oam” that are consumed by the wildlife animals. These animals event
ually die of malnutrition from what they thought was food that they
were eating. In addition to the harmful effects “Styrofoam” has on t
he environment and ecosystems, it also contains chemicals that can d
o major harm to our bodies. “Styrofoam” is known to contain chemi
cals such as neurotoxins styrene and benzene which have been link
ed to cancer, vision and hearing loss, impaired memory and concentr
ation, and nervous system effects. These toxins seep into our foods a
nd enter our bodies without us even realizing.
