The event was officially launched by principal secretary for environment Didier Dogley in the presence of representatives of different sections of the environment department such as the divisions of risk and disaster management.

Mr Dogley said the campaign is a time to show how caring we are towards our environment and to see the importance of maintaining it.

This year’s campaign is being run under the theme ‘Our islands, Our place, Our responsibility’.

After the launch, Mr Dogley joined the team present to clean the area near the Cascade primary school.

Other clean up activities were organised at district level and at different work places yesterday and they are expected to continue this weekend.
