Sandals Negril Wins Platinum Award

Congratulations Sandals. Keep up the great work.

Negril, Westmoreland - Sandals Negril resort has become the first hotel in the world to receive Green Globe's inaugural Platinum Award for consistently meeting and exceeding the organisation's standards for environmental preservation and community involvement.

Adam Stewart, chief executive officer of Sandals Resorts International (SRI), the Caribbean's leading resort chain, after accepting the award last week, used the occasion to announce two groundbreaking environmental projects launched in St Lucia and The Bahamas which, if successful, will be replicated in Jamaica.

"We are changing the way we run our hotels, to serve Mother Nature," Stewart said. "If Sandals can do this in the other islands, then we can carry these programmes to Jamaica and other hotels will eventually catch on."

Introducing La Pluma Negra

La Pluma Negra
La Pluma Negra is a clothing brand that started around November of 2003, in Kingston, Jamaica, out of the need to have a Jamaican brand that offers quality clothing and exhibits cultural awareness and national pride. The designs are avant-garde, sexy, 'tough', classy, and capture the great sense of humor of the Caribbean by using well-known phrases. The line initially started with t-shirts, but today their collection has capris, sweatshirts, jackets, sweat suits, hats, underwear, and much more.

The name 'La Pluma Negra' is Spanish for 'the Black pen or feather'. Their goal is to use this 'pen' to document cultural nuances. La Pluma Negra caters to men, women, and children. Their children line, called 'Tickles', is designed to teach children all over the world about the history and culture of Jamaica and the Caribbean, and to help children develop a sense of culture and pride.

The brand can be purchased online at or Their store is located at:
