Chamber Green Business

Water Authority-Cayman has taken the CI Chamber of Commerce ‘Environmental Pledge’ and is committed to playing an active role to protect our natural resources for future generations.  The Authority has taken on the responsibility of participating in the ‘Alphasoft Toner Recycling Program’.  Used toner cartridges are kept and given to Alphasoft Ltd. who then ships the cartridges off the island to be recycled.  This helps to lessen the amount of trash and harmful chemicals that we put in our landfill. 
 
Water Authority-Cayman is dedicated to supporting the Environmental Pledge and help keep the environment safe, healthy and clean for generations to come, one toner cartridge at a time.

Home automation is often associated with luxury living but did you know it can also reduce your energy consumption drastically.
