Cayman National Trust is helping kids understand the importance of protecting the environment.

All kids, teachers and parents preparing for school to begin are encouraged to participate in the Trust’s Crayola’s “ColorCycle” and “Elmer’s Crew” recycling programs.

Anyone who wants to participate can bring in used markers of any brand and clean, empty glue bottles or glue sticks to the Nature Store in Dart Park on South Church Street, and the National Trust will recycle them for free.

The initiative begins from Aug. 9 and will continue throughout the school year. Recycling receptacles have been set up at the Nature Store.

The initiative is part of the Trust’s continued commitment to helping Cayman reduce plastic waste and to encourage local efforts to make Cayman a cleaner, greener place to live.

Anyone interested in taking part in the environmental initiative can visit the Nature Store or email [email protected]
