How Sandals Resorts Works to Save Our Oceans

These days, the travel industry strives to involve itself in more sustainable programs and initiatives. Sandals Resorts joined in the movement with its new World Oceans Day through Sandals Foundation.


The Future Goals program turns fishing nets sourced from the ocean and recycled plastic waste into soccer goals for children. Sandals dedicates one day each year to World Oceans Day, in which the brand rededicates itself to conserving the waters on which each of its Caribbean resorts call home. This year, Sandals ventures to the shores of Curaçao, where the newest resort, Sandals Royal Curaçao, opened.

“Ghost nets,” otherwise known as fishing nets lost at sea, make up nearly half of the waste and plastic filling our oceans. The nets never decompose and are consistently known to injure and kill marine animals by tangling them inside. The “ghost nets” also are known to destroy coral, damage reefs and get tangled in boat and ship propellers.


Partnered with the Netherlands’ AFC Ajax team, Sandals Foundation and the local Curaçao plastic recycling company, Limpi, set out to create the colorful Future Goal goal posts for the local children. Limpi collects approximately 65 pounds of plastic waste and abandoned fishing nets to complete one of Future Goal’s initiatives. Each part of the goal, including net clips, are repurposed from plastic.


If you plan to stay at one of Sandals Resort’s properties and want to support the Future Goals program, you can contribute to Sandals Foundation, where 100 percent of the donation proceeds go directly to the program.
