Shopping bagsPress Release - March 14, 2008

Starting on March 24th and running up to May 3rd - the 21st Bermuda End-to-End event - there will be series of Public Service Announcements (PSA) in the local newspapers and on several of the local radio stations.

This PSA campaign is meant to educate those living in Bermuda on the long-term impact of NOT switching to a reusable bag and bottle as an alternative to buying bottled water, primarily in plastic bottles, and using disposable plastic or paper bags.

This PSA campaign was made possible by the generous grant received from the 2007 Bermuda End-to-End (registered charity 558) during their 20th Anniversary.

Excerpt:

"This chapter seeks to explore some of the issues associated with maintaining the economy, as well as, ensuring that all Bermudians have the opportunity to share in Bermuda’s prosperity.

One area which is very difficult to address is the cost of living and doing business in Bermuda. Bermuda’s small size presents issues of scale throughout the market, which in a number of cases prevents effective competition that could bring down prices. Equally, the high cost of living is simply an indicator of the sustained success of the economy and an increase in disposable incomes."

The implementation Plan takes the primary and secondary priorities set out in the Sustainable Development Strategy and breaks them down further. It sets them out under five broad themes:

• Theme 1: Building and Maintaining an Inclusive Strong Economy
• Theme 2: Transforming Governance and the Public Sector
• Theme 3: Protecting and Enhancing our Environment and Natural Resources
• Theme 4: Sustaining our Communities
• Theme 5: Living within Bermuda’s Limits

For each priority, the Implementation Plan

• offers some background, defining the particular issue in question;
• sets some short- and medium-term objectives, and where possible, targets;
• offers some options for actions to achieve those objectives;
• suggests actors, both governmental and non-governmental;
• suggests timelines for delivery; and
• sets out what is already being undertaken by Government.

"This section outlines the vision for Bermuda in the future, drawing on the many inputs received during public consultation. Setting out this vision will not in itself mean that it will be achieved. However, it does give an idea of the Bermuda which residents would like to see and thus gives direction to the policies and actions which are needed in the future. This vision is set out under five main themes."
