Earth Day. Clean up Cayman

Hundreds of people turned out for the Chamber of Commerce Earth Day Roadside Clean-Up on 17 April, even though the weather was less than perfect. From 7am and in some cases earlier, teams of people came out in their Chamber Earth Day T-shirts sponsored by BritCay Insurance and collected bits of strewn garbage and debris from around our roadsides and beaches to make Cayman a cleaner and safer place for all of us, including our wildlife. After the work was done, a hot breakfast awaited everyone at Public Beach thanks to LIME and Rotary volunteers who helped serve it to some very wet participants. Thanks to the RPCU and DEH staff the collected garbage was collected in a timely and efficient manner.
“Today was a great success” said Wil Pineau, Chamber CEO.
“It’s a wonderful thing to see so many members of our business community, church groups, and schools coming out in their clean-up teams and making such a difference to our Islands. Even in the rain we have had a great time. Having garbage lining our roads and beaches is a terrible message to visitors and investors to our Islands. We live in one of the most beautiful places in the world – let’s respect that fact and take good care of it. Thanks must really go to our sponsors and the 1500 people who signed up to help.”
