An environmental charity that prides itself on keeping the island clean is celebrating 60 year of service to the community.

Keep Bermuda Beautiful is one of the island’s oldest environmental charities, established as a sub-committee of The Garden Club of Bermuda in 1964.

To recognise the milestone, KBB has a new, Bermuda-themed logo, designed by Candice Dickinson, to reflect its work on land and sea.

The charity will host a series of public events throughout the year in honour of its long history of clean-up work and environmental advocacy.

The first of these 60th-anniversary celebrations will be held during the grand finale of the 2024 Great Big Bermuda Clean-Up sponsored by BF&M.

Residents, KBB members past and present, schools, corporate partners and community organisations are invited to join the clean-up at Friendship Vale park on Palmetto Road, Devonshire, from 9am to 11am, which will be followed by a celebration at the same place.

Traci Burgess, the executive director of KBB, said: “The morning will start with community clean-ups at locations throughout Devonshire Parish.

“Clean-up activities will finish at 11am with a reception in the park. This family-friendly event will include entertainment, refreshments, KBB trivia and prizes, all free of charge.

“KBB’s mission is to engage individuals to take greater responsibility in reducing waste and eliminating litter through action and education.

“Over the past six decades, tens of thousands of KBB volunteers have removed over one million pounds of litter, illegal dumping and ocean pollution from Bermuda’s 21 square miles of land and 64 linear miles of coastline.

“The organisation has provided valuable environmental lessons to countless generations of students through its education programmes.”

She added: “KBB’s community outreach initiatives provide waste management education for Bermuda’s adult population.

“These are delivered through public awareness campaigns, special events and community engagement opportunities.

“The goal of KBB’s education framework is to inspire individuals to develop positive waste management habits that can last a lifetime.”

KBB thanked the community for continuing to support its vision for a “cleaner, greener and more beautiful Bermuda for all”.
