Zero Waste Initiative BVI & Beyond

Launched at the beginning of 2017 our initiative intends to join community members, business owners and visitors of The Virgin Islands territory in an effort to reduce excessive waste polluting the natural habitat. Supporting each individual in an effort to stay aware of the amount of waste produced on a daily basis. Eventually establishing and successfully promoting the spread of a waste conscious lifestyle. As suggested by popular ‘90s superhero Captain Planet, “The Power is YOURS!”

Zero Waste is defined as a philosophy that encourages the redesign of resource life cycles allowing all products reuse. Similar to the way that resources are reused in nature, where there truly is no waste. With the exception of specific man-made products including single-use plastic items and Styrofoam products which take upwards to 500+ years to decompose, the opportunity to extend the lifecycle of

Our Strategy

Implementing the following routines in preparation for the territory’s first zero waste management facility by 2027:

Reduction – Waste Prevention

Reducing all excessive waste and preventing unnecessary waste is as easy as it sounds. Do you have your own reusable cups or mugs that can be used to reduce single-use product waste? Do you have your own reusable bag to use while shopping? Don’t forget it! Stay present of all the convenient methods that single-use plastic/Styrofoam items show up in our daily lives and REFUSE them.

Recycling – Reuse

If you are able to arrange the setup of recycling pick up in your area, then go for it! Take the initiative where you are to make a change. Remember that all items may be recycled from clothing, shoes, books and bigger items including automobiles, boats and mechanical equipment. Reach out to community members and offer your own items to others who may be in need. Sharing is caring.

Composting

Limiting food waste and using organic waste items for compost at all costs. Local compost may then be used for community efforts and farmers alike. Extending the lifecycle and removing the need for organic waste and food waste to end up in landfills or incinerated.

    This design is incredible! You certainly know how to
    keep a reader amused. Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start
    my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Great job. I really enjoyed
    what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool! Sling tv coupons and promo codes for november 2018

    error, while I was looking on Google for something else, Anyhow I am here
    now and would just like to say thanks for a tremendous post and a all round entertaining blog (I also
    love the theme/design), I don’t have time to read it all at the minute but I have
    bookmarked it and also added in your RSS feeds, so
    when I have time I will be back to read more, Please do keep up the great work.

  3. It’s the best time to make a few plans for the
    longer term and it’s time to be happy. I’ve read this put up and if I may just I wish to counsel you few fascinating issues or tips.
    Perhaps you could write subsequent articles relating to this
    article. I want to learn even more things about it!

  4. Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to help
    with SEO? I’m trying to get my blog to rank for some targeted
    keywords but I’m not seeing very good gains.
    If you know of any please share. Kudos!

  5. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make your point.
    You clearly know what youre talking about, why waste your intelligence on just
    posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative
    to read?

  6. I am not sure where you are getting your information, but great
    topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more.
    Thanks for magnificent info I was looking for this information for my mission.

  7. Have you ever thought about publishing an e-book or guest
    authoring on other websites? I have a blog centered on the same topics
    you discuss and would love to have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers
    would value your work. If you are even remotely interested, feel free to send me an email.

  8. I think that what you posted was very reasonable.
    However, think on this, suppose you wrote a catchier post title?
    I am not suggesting your content is not good,
    however what if you added something that grabbed people’s attention? I
    mean Zero Waste Initiative BVI & Beyond – Unified Events
    is kinda vanilla. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create article titles to
    grab people to click. You might try adding a video or a related picture or two to grab readers excited about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your blog a little livelier.
