More than 600 volunteers with Keep Bermuda Beautiful have cleaned up 22 different locations across the island as they joined this year’s Earth Day Challenge.

KBB said Challenge participants had been encouraged to post photographs of their Earth Day actions, tag KBB or Keep Bermuda Beautiful, and use #kbb and #earthdaybda to share in the fun.

KBB extended a special thank you to the six corporate groups and 14 school programmes who participated in the Earth Day clean-ups. They were BF&M Insurance; the Department of Youth, Sport and Recreation’s after-school programmes at Dalton E. Tucker Primary, Eastern Zone Community Centre, Elliot Primary, Francis Patton Primary, Heron Bay Primary, Paget Primary, Port Royal Primary, Prospect Primary, Purvis Primary and West Pembroke Primary; CG Insurance; the Hamilton Group; HSBC’s Gen Y Committee; Island Employment Partners; Liberty Group; Northlands Primary School; Saltus Grammar School; and Somersfield Academy.
