Environmental fair on the Brac

The Aston Rutty Civic Centre on Cayman Brac hosts the Lions club of Cayman Brac Go Green Environmental Fair this Saturday, 26 May.

Gates open at 10am and admission is free, says Kevin Roberts of the club.

“The club is committed to practicing environmentally safe and friendly measures. Our goal this year is to plan and implement environmental initiatives, both within our club and in our surrounding community. We aim to provide the knowledge and encouragement necessary to help organisations and individuals in the community make healthier, more environmentally responsible choices.

“At this fair, the community will be presented with ideas and examples of how they can adopt a green lifestyle. We have invited several organisations which promote environmental awareness, or market environmentally friendly products and services, to take part in the fair,” he said.

Getting green

The belief is that those organisations can provide excellent examples or advice to the Cayman Brac community, on the steps that can be taken to become more environmentally aware. The presenters include The National Trust, Cayman Islands Department of Environmental Health, Cayman Islands Department of Environment, Cayman Islands Department of Agriculture, Central Caribbean Marine Institute, Dart Enterprises and Cayman Automotive.

Cayman Automotive will be displaying a Wheego electric car and Corporate Electric, working with U-GO Cayman Stations will be displaying the solar charging station for the electric car, continues Kevin.

“Our club issued a challenge to organisations on the Brac to become greener and invited them to display at the fair, the methods that they have adopted to become greener. These organisations included supermarkets, restaurants, hotels, guest houses, shops, the hospital, Government departments and schools. At the fair, the organisations that accepted the challenge will be judged in a particular category and may receive the Lion’s Green Award.

“Our Main sponsors for this environmental fair are Dart Enterprises Ltd, Moses Kirkconnell MLA, Cayman Islands Department of Agriculture and Cayman Islands Department of Tourism.”

Plenty going on – sounds great and well worth a look.
