KBB volunteers pick up 11,000 pounds of trash
Volunteers cleaned-up 11,000 pounds of trash across the island in April to mark Earth Month.
More than 800 people took part in the environmental projects organised by Keep Bermuda Beautiful (KBB).
In all, some 36 clean-ups took place with 22 scheduled around Earth Day on April 22.
The move saw the removal of recyclables and bulk waste from Bermuda’s roadsides, parks and beaches.
Stefan Smith, president of KBB’s board, said: “The support and enthusiasm for Earth Day 2022 was phenomenal.
“Thank you to everyone who participated in the cleanups and provided sponsorship.
“KBB’s mission to engage individuals in Bermuda through action and education was on full display for Earth Month.
“We hope that individuals who took environmental action in April will continue with their efforts throughout the year.
“As we move beyond Earth Month 2022, it is important that each one of us takes responsibility to reduce our waste-creating habits, especially by eliminating single-use plastics; reuse what we can; and recycle tin, aluminium and glass.”
