National Bank of the Virgin Islands Joins Forces with The BVI Tourist Board to Promote a Sustainable BVI
Tortola, British Virgin Islands, September 11, 2019…The BVI Tourist Board’s Seeds of Love program continues to bloom and generate interest in the Territory. Community organizations, schools, guests and volunteers of the BVI have all given a helping hand to contribute to the success of the program in its efforts to replant trees and beautify the BVI. National Bank of the Virgin Islands decided to participate in the Seeds of Love initiative to kick off their new focus on energy use and recycling practices.
On September 21, as part of the Seeds of Love initiative, National Bank of the Virgin Islands will plant several plants along DeCastro Street in Road Town. Joy Francis, Chief Executive Officer of the National Bank of the Virgin Islands, commented, "The BVI is our home. It is our responsibility to enrich, preserve and tend to our environment in the best way we can. Planting with the Seeds of Love campaign allows us to play a small part that will no doubt make a significant impact in our community for years to come.".
“The BVI Tourist Board is not only excited that the Seeds of Love initiative plays a role in helping the bank achieve its “green” goals, but also enthusiastic about sharing our environmental goals in promoting a sustainable tourism product”, said Director of Tourism, Sharon Flax-Brutus.
The BVI Tourist Board’s Seeds of Love initiative was launched in 2017 in an effort to replant trees lost as a result of Hurricanes Irma and Maria, which impacted the Territory in September of that year.
