Obesity on the rise Early this month, Greenrock launched its new Healthy Harvest Bermuda initiative. As a charity focused on raising awareness of sustainability issues, Greenrock looks not only at environmental concerns, but also at those that affect sustainable development. The health of the nation is part of that.

A new Government scheme is making going green a little less expensive. The Solar Photovoltaic Rebate Initiative, which launched yesterday, will offer residents a rebate of up to $5,000 for the installation of solar panels.

Recycling at workOne much-discussed issue in the last few months is how to manage waste. Not theoretical waste – wasted energy, wasted time – or even something more topical like wasted assets, but actual physical waste: bottles, paper, old computers, old food, stuff we are actively trying to get out the door.

Most companies are doing their best to dispose of waste in an environmentally friendly manner. Almost all companies have separate recycling bins. Many companies collect so many used phone books that the resultant stack could almost be a work of art or a feat of engineering. A lot of companies also try to find ways to give away or reuse old computers, monitors and cell phones to abate the embarrassment of electronic superfluity that seems to collect around most of us these days. However, disposing of things in an environmentally friendly way, particularly in Bermuda, is not easy.

Reading the Green PagesGreenrock reflects on one year in The Green Pages.

For Greenrock, the mantra "Changing the Mindset" implies a long-term commitment to the progressive shift toward a more sustainable Bermuda - in the environmental, social, and economic spheres. To do so, it is important to speak directly to the public, with a clear message, about ways to generate meaningful change. Working in partnership with The Royal Gazette's Green Pages has been an opportunity to do just that.

Greenrock was formed in 2003, but it truly began its work in the Bermuda community in 2005.  At that time, Greenrock’s constitution was redrafted and a formal structure was developed. Since then, the day-to-day governance of Greenrock has been supervised by a Management Committee. This Committee comprises volunteers with a wide variety of backgrounds.  Each member of the Committee is assigned an area of focus and is encouraged to build their own sub-committees to help execute various tasks.
