UTC CARES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT

 

As part of World Environment Day (WED) initiatives, staff of the Unit Trust Corporation (UTC) in collaboration with Papa Bois Environmental Group, came together to clean up the beautiful Yaara Beach on the North West Coast, Trinidad and Tobago. In order to make the clean-up more environment friendly, staff reduced the use of plastics and all traveled by maxi to the beach.

Candice Hazel, Marketing Officer, UTC, said “this is my first time doing a beach clean-up and it feels good to know that our efforts in some way, benefit the environment and doing it with my colleagues made the experience more fun.”

This year’s “WED” theme was “Greening the Blue,” an effort to sensitize citizens on practicing sustainable living through reduced use of the earth’s natural resources and one’s carbon footprint by practicing alternative methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet.

World Environment Day was Friday 5th June, 2015.
