Clean beaches are the key to ecotourism

PANAMA CITY BEACH. With only a few weeks left until summer, millions of tourists are about to flock to the area and the authorities are asking everyone to clean up trash from the beach.

Lacey Rudd, a spokeswoman for Visit Panama City Beach, stressed that white sand beaches are “the most important demand driver” for the city’s tourism-fuelled economy.

This is also the reason why Panama City Beach residents do not pay property taxes.

“Each year as we enter ‘beach season’, there is an increase in the amount of trash that cleaners have to contend with,” Rudd said. “We always encourage beachgoers to do their part to preserve the beauty of Panama City Beach.”
