From April 19 to 22, 2021, the Ministry of the Environment and Housing will be hosting a schedule of activities to commemorate Earth Day 2021, which is being celebrated worldwide under the theme “Restore our Earth”. This theme may be interpreted as doing more as it relates to environmental cleanup efforts, but it may also be interpreted as doing less to create pollution in the first place.  This would allow the earth to restore itself.  On Tuesday, April 20, Ministry officials including Environmental Health Services Department Director, Melony Mckenzie and Royal Bahamas Police Force officers gave away recyclable bags in the Coconut Grove area.
