But that was just the beginning for the BVI, whose tourism officials soon launched a program called Seeds of Love aiming to replant the trees and vegetation that were lost, and have regularly organized cleanup programs across the territory, part of an admirable focus on making its tourism industry meaningful for the entire community — in other words, making it sustainable.
