Reuse bags and bottles to help protect Bermuda's environment. That's the message that environmental charity Greenrock will be spreading, thanks to a major grant from Bermuda End-to-End. Greenrock, which promotes sustainable development initiatives, will receive $20,000 from End-to-End's 20th Anniversary Fund. The money will go towards Greenrock's "Bring Your Own Bottle or Bag" Public Service Advertising (PSA) campaign, which focuses on the importance of carrying reusable bottles and bags rather than using disposable items.


An environmental group has given a cautious welcome to the news that a luxury hotel planned for Southlands may now be built at Morgan's Point.

Former Premier Alex Scott revealed last month that the owners of Southlands were in talks with Government about a land swap which would see them hand over their 37-acre site in Warwick in exchange for land on the deserted Morgan's Point peninsula in Southampton.


Musicians weren't the only performers wowing the public at the recent Greenrock concert held at the Arboretum, there was also environmentally friendly electric scooters, biodegradable cutlery and bio-diesel fuel, among other things.

Environmental campaigners say refusal of planning permission for a wind turbine at a Grade Two-listed house is an example of "double speak" by Government.

Greenrock and the Bermuda Environmental and Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) both criticised the Department of the Environment yesterday for lack of consistency in policy.

They said the refusal of an appeal for the micro-wind turbine due to its "visual impact" was at odds with a decision earlier this year to delist the Grade One-listed building, the 'Queen of the East', leaving the 18th century building vulnerable to development.

Bermuda's first 'green' concert has been hailed a success after top international acts laid on performances for more than 1,000 guests.

Entertainer and environmental campaigner Heather Nova was the star act at the Greenrock festival at the Arboretum, Devonshire, on Saturday.

Campaigners for sustainable development have welcomed a trial by Belco into domestic wind and solar power but say they should be included in the process.

TAG - that is the message for Bermuda as the country enters a new era of environmental care and responsibility. TAG stands for Tin, Aluminium and Glass and residents are being urged to TAG their waste following the official opening of the Island’s Recycling Centre.

Premier Dr. Ewart Brown yesterday opened the $8.35 million plant at Bailey’s Bay Quarry.

Green campaigners are echoing calls for Bermuda’s Baselands to be cleaned up to release land for development.

However, handling baby diapers and rotting lobsters was not something employees at Bermuda's Recycling Centre expected when they started their shifts at the new facility last week.

With inflation at a 16-year-high, Government has singled out soaring global oil costs, but environmentalists say Ministers are not doing enough to action alternative energy sources.

stilinthetunnelA demonstration was held by B.E.S.T on March 20, 2007 at the proposed Southlands hotel site in an effort to show the scale of the project in terms that everyone can understand. Protesters held signs showing the points of entry and exit for the proposed tunnel on South Shore.
See the video of the event with comments from some of the people who were there.
