Challenges:

Month long theme challenges:

These challenges are to do at home with the family or individually to make a start at becoming more environmental aware of our choices and actions

Refuse, Reuse, Reduce, Recycle

  • Refuse plastics – say no to plastic bags and bottled water
  • Reuse – use reusable water bottles, travel mugs, shopping bags, etc
  • Reduce – the amount of waste we produce – start composting
  • Recycle – DEH, Junk and Cayman Recycling services collect aluminum cans, plastics, glass and scrap metals to be recycled

 

Reduce your Carbon Footprint

  • Save gas – by cycling or carpooling when possible

 

Plant A Tree

  • Can be a  tree, a shrub, herbs, fruit or vegetables
  • Every tree planted outdoors adds habitat for birds and works to remove carbon dioxide from the air. Every indoor plant improves your indoor air quality. Plant a potted plant by your TV, stereo or computer in April.
