Coast Weeks Coastal Clean-up on St. Croix to Begin on Sept. 15

UVI’s Virgin Islands Marine Advisory Service (VIMAS) is organizing Coast Weeks under the theme, “Fighting for Trash Trees Seas.” This initiative forms part of TOC’s International Coastal Cleanup taking place from Sept. 15 through Oct. 31. An invitation is extended to everyone to plan a coastal clean-up.

Interested persons can join already established clean-up groups, which include:
– St. Croix Environmental Association
– The St. Croix Educational Complex
– UVI’s Psychology Club
– Department of Planning and Natural Resources
– UVI’s Upward Bound

Individuals are also advised that they can initiate and organize a clean-up group.

Pre-cleanup presentations will be provided by VIMAS. Clean-up gear and material to include trash bags, gloves and data cards will also be provided.

Unlike many news organizations, we haven't put up a paywall - we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. Our sites are more popular than ever, but advertising revenues are falling - so you can see why we could use your help. Our independent journalism costs time, money and hard work to keep you informed, but we do it because we believe that it matters. If everybody who appreciates our reporting efforts were to help fund it for as little as $1, our future would be much more secure. Thanks in advance for your support!
