  • At least 15 people were killed when a boat carrying Haitian migrants capsized off the coast of Turks and Caicos. At least 14 people survived and four others remain unaccounted for.

  • Turning Plastic Trash Into Cash in Haiti

To alleviate the problem, the Plastic Bank pays people to collect plastic waste that can be recycled and reused. Richardson Gustave oversees the organization’s daily operations around his home city of Port-au-Prince, coordinating transportation and inspection, and ensuring that collectors have the equipment needed to complete this vital task. This is the second story in our latest series, “The Brave,” all about the incredible people protecting our Great Big Planet.
