International Coastal Cleanup 2018

Every year around eight million metric tonnes of plastic ends up in the world’s seas and oceans, adding to the 150 million metric tonnes already there. This mind-boggling amount of plastic has a massive impact on the marine environment. The figures are astounding, but we can do something about it.

On Saturday, 22 September, the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) is getting everyone in Turks and Caicos involved in taking care of our coastlines.

The DECR in partnership with the Tourist Board, the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association and the National Trust, will be leading clean-up activities around the country.

You can join any one of the clean-ups in the following locations:

  • The Bight (Kid’s) Park, Provo
  • Blue Hills Dock, Provo
  • Five Cays Community Centre, Provo
  • Front Street, Grand Turk
  • School for Field Studies, South Caicos
  • Beach Access, Danny’s Café, Middle Caicos
  • Entrance to Kew at COGOP Church, North Caicos
  • Hollywood Park, Whitby, North Caicos
  • Sandy Point Community Centre, North Caicos
  • Bottle Creek entrance by the sign on King Road, North Caicos
  • The Creek, Salt Cay

Remember to bring gloves, trash bags, a small first aid kit, and a reusable water bottle.

Together let’s fight for trash free seas!
