The development of a comprehensive recycling program on St. John has never fully come to fruition, despite interest from many island residents. Join the Island Green Building Association and Gifft Hill School’s Education and Resiliency Through Horticulture program on Thursday, May 30, at the GHS Upper Campus atrium to see how community members can help bring recycling to St. John.
A presentation entitled “Recycle What, Where?” will feature a panel of community activists discussing which recycling activities are ongoing – aluminum can recycling and composting – and which efforts are gathering steam – plastic bailing, glass crushing, and others. Panelists will also discuss the best path moving forward, and share with community members how they can be a part of the solution.
A potluck, beginning at 5:30 p.m., will precede the panel discussion, which starts at 6 p.m. Please bring a dish to share if you wish to join the potluck.
This presentation is a Green Thursdays Seminar, part of the Island Sustainability Series presented by IGBA and GHS’s EARTH program. These monthly seminars focus on making the Virgin Islands a greener place to live. All are welcome to attend.
