Get Trashed Celebrates Their 9th Birthday with Corona Sponsorship

Get Trashed Celebrates Their 9th Birthday with Corona Sponsorship 2

With its fair share of restaurants, lack of public receptacles, and a flourishing tourism industry, the streets of Cruz Bay are often littered with discarded trash. In Coral Bay, debris from the local boating and fishing industry can be seen in a tangled web along the shoreline. And while this can be discouraging, one resident decided to take action and in 2015, Erin Lieb founded Get Trashed, a volunteer group dedicated to picking up debris around the island.

By gaining popularity over the years and occasionally partnering with local nonprofits such as Island Green Living and Friends of the Virgin Islands National Park, Get Trashed has made a significant impact by keeping St. John litter free.

Good morning!

Are you planning a vacation to St. John soon, and you have a mental checklist of everything you need before your arrival?

What do you have so far?

  1. plane tickets (I always recommend buying these as early as possible!)
  2. accommodations – villa, airbnb, or hotel?
  3. car rental, if necessary
  4. and of course, reef safe sunscreen

Now that you have all the essentials out of the way, the fun part of planning can start. What about a unique live music experience that could come to you? Or a sunset concert on a catamaran? Going into Cruz Bay to listen to some late-night live shows is a must do, but what if you want a night in with a similar experience? With an eclectic group of talented artists on this island, ranging from blues to psychedelic rock, there is surely something for everyone that can make your vacation unforgettable.

We’ve created a local musician’s catalog (in alphabetical order) to help you find exactly what you’re looking for and to make bookings easier. This list is constantly being updated. If you are a musician local to St. John and would like to be added to the catalog, please reach out to  [email protected]
