(CMR) The Pirates Week Festival is proud to bring back its Pirates Against Plastic initiative in conjunction with Plastic Free Cayman (PFC) to once again parley with the Pirates for a beach clean-up.
Participants are being sought to assist PFC on Sunday 10th November in cleaning up the beach at Safehaven from 8:00 am to 11:00 am (parking available next to the North Sound Golf Club).
“We appreciate the Plastic Free Cayman team for supporting the Pirates Against Plastic initiative once again. Anyone of any age and any skill level can get involved and have fun alongside our local pirate characters in this clean-up effort,” said Melanie McField, Pirates Week General Manager.
People wishing to assist in the clean-up are asked to bring gloves and a reusable water container. Some cleanup tools will be supplied; ice water and snacks will also be available.
“It’s been so inspiring to see the community come and help at beach cleans. I believe when people come and clean up, they get to see plastic pollution firsthand and then are much more motivated to make some simple changes to their lifestyle,”
said Claire Hughes, Plastic Free Cayman founder.
“Pirates Against Plastic is an awesome way to help spread the message to our community that using single-use plastic is not ‘cool’. We are hoping to see many volunteers at the clean up on the 10th of November to help pick up some plastic,” she commented.
