We are a team of volunteers passionate about reducing single-use plastic in the beautiful Cayman Islands. We aim to raise awareness to the growing issues surrounding plastic pollution and help others on their plastic-free journey. We began as a grassroots movement in 2017 with monthly clean ups and were awarded our ‘Not for Profit Charitable Trust’ certificate in June 2018.
Global plastic pollution is horrific and we are not immune to it on our paradise island. It’s going to take a global effort and local action to make a difference. Are you ready to get started? Making changes starts with us all. Check out these tips from Less Plastic UK and be sure to take our ‘345 Pledge’.
We have an amazing team of volunteers who generously give their time to help us clean up our beaches and other inland areas. You can join too! We’d love you to be part of our Plastic Free Cayman community.
In addition to our monthly clean ups we have teamed with the Central Terrace and have a clothing swop once a month. Our Bottle Cap Drive was a great success and we are awaiting to hear where we can install it. Our ‘345 Pledge’ began in October 2018. We work with local businesses to guide them in their plastic-free journey, work with the National Trust on a Plastic Free School initiative and accept overseas voluntourism groups too.
We’ve monitored the islands only Seabin in its first year and show educational documentaries at Cayman Creperie. We offer “lunch and learns” and are on the Goverment Steering Committee working on single-use plastic bans.
Coming April 2020 – “Youth Summit” Watch this space!
We are forming some amazing partnerships! People locally and globally are doing great things to combat plastic pollution and supporting our efforts.
If you want to work with us or are helping with reducing plastic pollution, please let us know and get in touch.
