Every school child on the island is familiar with the “recycle triangle” which says we should “reduce, reuse and recycle”. But what we often don’t think about is that this is not a series of equal options but is actually a hierarchy.

Greenrock is the proud recipient of a 'Best of Bermuda 2012' award from The Bermudian Magazine for Best Booster for the Environment.

Now in its twenty-second year, the Best of Bermuda Awards is unarguably the biggest, most comprehensive and prestigious it has ever been, bestowing almost 200 awards upon local shops, restaurants, people and places.

EH_sign_upEach year, Greenrock and its partners in the Earth Hour Council aim to engage with as many local businesses and properties in Bermuda to participate in Earth Hour.

Our pdf Business Participation Agreement outlines why this global event is important and asks everyone – from property owners, facilities managers, employees – to turn off all non-essential lights in the workplace for Earth Hour (23-Mar, 8:30 – 9:30 PM).

It was with a sense of déjà vu reading The Royal Gazette recently when it was reported Bermuda is experiencing a drought and residents are once again being urged to conserve water.

EarthHour_cityhall_eventEarth Hour is a symbolic event where on the last Saturday in March billions of people across the globe switch lights off at 8.30pm for one hour to mark the world's largest public action for climate change. We encourage all Bermuda residents and businesses to do the same plan an event, have a candle-light dinner, or cast your vote for action on climate change by turning out your lights!

Here is a short video from our 2012 Earth Hour Expo, inspiring us to keep on moving and championing a powerful message for action on climate change.

We hope you'll feel the same.

GreenrockSays_SargassoGreenrock is working with other environmental groups as part of the Bermuda Alliance for the Sargasso Sea (BASS) with the goal of establishing part of the Sargasso Sea as the world's first international marine reserve.

Here, Greenrock management committee member Felix Tod explains what the Sargasso Sea is, why it's important and what part we can all play in protecting it.

Bermuda Environmental Sustainability Taskforce (BEST) researchers have been digging once again in all of our interests and have the real scoop behind the Devonshire March Development controversy. They have released an excellent video showing why the warehouse development applied for at Devonshire Marsh should have been rejected, and not even considered by the Development Applications Board (DAB), much less been the subject of an appeal.
