One of the best things about Turks and Caicos is the natural landscape but we all have a role to play in keeping the place looking tip-top.

Next Saturday 22 September is International Coastal Clean-Up Day and all the residents of TCI are being asked to play their part in a major clean-up to mark the occasion.

Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) has teamed up with the Turks & Caicos Tourist Board, the Turks & Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association (TCHTA) and the Turks & Caicos National Trust to organise the event, which aims to encourage people to go out into their communities and remove litter found along the shoreline and underwater to keep our waters clean.

According to Magnetic Media, over 455 bags of trash were collected during International Coastal Clean-Up Day in 2016 and the DRCR is hoping that this year's event will be "the biggest clean-up effort the TCI has ever seen".
