Greenrock, in partnership with The Bermuda National Trust, are proud to announce the second annual Earth Day Student Video Competition.

Spread the word about this exciting opportunity to showcase creativity, innovation and commitment to our natural and cultural heritage as well as to the future of the planet.

christmas_ballsGreenrock wishes you all a happy, healthy and relaxing holiday season. Thank you for your support over the past year.

Let's spread joy by enjoying the ways in which we are getting it right, and where we are making good decisions that make our lifestyle more sustainable.

Let's celebrate the gardens that are planted, the times we didn't buy bottled water but refilled at a Hydration Station or tap, the light-bulbs we finally got around to switching to CFL or LED, the times the children came home all excited with a new message about changes at school.

voteAs the general election draws nearer it seems Bermuda's environment has taken a back seat to pressing economic concerns. Greenrock would like to emphasise the importance of environmental issues and highlight initiatives that will promote sustainable living, and even reduce the cost of living.

Greenrock got a nice mention in today's Royal Gazette post-election article entitled "Charities, lobby groups call for dialogue".

The One Bermuda Alliance should consult with non-governmental bodies in order to build a better Bermuda, according to numerous groups.
