‘Plastic Free Cayman’, in collaboration with ‘Red Sail Sports Grand Cayman’, have started a community beach cleanup initiative in the Cayman Islands. During the first weekend of every month, a different location is selected for a community cleanup. In February (2018) alone, volunteers collected a whopping 2,500lbs of trash, making a total of 6583lbs over the last 6 months. Plastic Free Cayman is a community organization, with plans to be a Non for Profit, which encourages individuals and businesses to go plastic-free through awareness, education and action. In addition to beach cleanups, ‘Plastic Free Cayman’ has an ongoing campaign encouraging the community to refuse single-use plastics.

Got Eggs?? Local. Organic. Sustainable.
Support Local Farmers.
Brothers, Shanan and Pasmore Harrison have a Cayman Egg Farm which is not-for-profit. Any proceeds from egg purchases goes directly into feeding and maintaining the chickens as well as supporting Shanan’s ministry which teaches youth and adults how to cook. Together, their hard work is a labor of love. The chickens are specifically, layer fowls which means that they do not rely on a rooster to produce eggs. The animals are cared for with love, and respect. All farmed eggs are organic, thus they are hormone and antibiotic free! Check out their feature on Eco Chic Cayman

“My love for baking comes with my love and appreciation for simple ingredients. I believe that food should be gorgeous to look at and rich in flavour; balancing salty and sweet so the two work in harmony…I started off as a science major, pursuing a degree in structural engineering -but my passion for baking lead me down the path to make it a lifelong career; one I could make my own…from SCRATCH.” Brittany Seymour
