In 2014, Johanan Dujon a young man from St Lucia, saw an opportunity and founded his company Algas Organics.
To many it was a problem, giant masses of brown Sargassum was washing up on beaches across the Caribbean, leaving mounds of smelly seaweed.
Dujon idea was to convert Sargassum into a biofertiliser through an environmentally friendly process. But initially he faced many challenges. First he had to test if his idea could actually work. Then he had to move from a test to production and finally making this a business.
The video below highlights some of the steps that this young St Lucia took to finally start his company.

Derek Walcott, whose intricately metaphorical poetry captured the physical beauty of the Caribbean, the harsh legacy of colonialism and the complexities of living and writing in two cultural worlds, bringing him a Nobel Prize in Literature, died early Friday morning at his home near Gros Islet in St. Lucia. He was 87.
THE mere fact that we have to ask the question, ‘why write Creole?’ is indicative of a cancerous underlying negative attitude towards our indigenous tongue. No one feels the need to ask ‘why write French?’ or ‘why write English?’ But, for Creole speaking peoples, the question reflects that, for historical reasons, our Creole language has suffered from the inflationary effects of never having had the status of being perceived as a valid language. It has been outcast, referred to as bad, or as a bastardization of the French language, not a ‘proper’ language.
Statistics from the UNAIDS Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS has revealed that more than 500 people are living with HIV and the AIDS disease in Saint Lucia, representing the second highest figure in the Eastern Caribbean.
Over thirty years ago, a retired nurse made the interesting comment that in the past there were hardly cases of malnutrition among children. She posited that malnutrition is a product of modern day eating style.

After winning an academic scholarship to a small liberal arts college in northern Louisiana, she volunteered for experimental training in one of two research labs, interning at other universities during undergraduate summers.
