Pirates help pick up trash during the inaugural Pirates Against Plastic beach clean-up in 2018

(CNS): Pirates will be joining forces with a local NGO next month for a raid on plastic at Safehaven. The Pirates Week Festival announced this week that it has brought back the beach clean-up to this year’s festival and will be partnering with Plastic Free Cayman. Melanie McField, Pirates Week General Manager, said that anyone of any age can get involved and have fun alongside the local pirate characters in the clean-up.

“It’s been so inspiring to see the community come and help at beach cleanings,” said Claire Hughes, Plastic Free Cayman founder.

“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. 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,” she added.

Everyone is urged to come out and join the Pirates Against Plastic initiative on Sunday 10 November from 8:00am. People are asked to bring gloves and a reusable water container. Some clean-up tools will be supplied; ice water and snacks will be also be available.

    Yes, lets go and clean up Darts land again like we did a few months back.

    Why not clean up a beach thats actually used by residents and tourists like some of the small and secluded beaches in East End that always get hit hard by plastic and junk brought by the prevailing winds?

    Why are you cleaning Darts land anyway? Surely he can afford to hire ppl to clean it instead of relying on volunteers.
