International Coastal Cleanup Day

Collecting garbage in a wheel barrow, The Somerset On Grace Bay

On Saturday, September 21st, the Turks and Caicos Islands Government Ministry of Environment and Home Affairs spearheaded local participation in “International Coastal Cleanup Day.”

Among those taking part in this public – private partnership effort were several Grace Bay resort properties.
