I doubt there’s a kid on the island who doesn’t look forward to the simple childhood pleasures that characterise Halloween: dressing up, thrilling games and activities and, of course, a copious supply of candy.

Initially influenced by Celtic harvest festivals, Halloween is a time to celebrate Earth's bounty.

throne-speechThe 2013 Throne Speech strongly suggests that this Government perceives the environment and sustainability as something 'nice to have' after the economy and employment prospects improve. We need to change our (and their) mindset - using fewer resources and protecting our island for the future has both an immediate and a long-term positive impact on the economy, many studies have shown that it also increases job opportunities, and most importantly it connects people to their environment, strengthening the bonds of community.

bananasHere in Bermuda the vast majority of the waste we produce is destined to be burnt at the Tynes Bay Incinerator, which at last count burns over 60,000 tons of trash a year. Most of the trash we produce is a by-product of our consumption, the packaging for consumable goods.
