Green VI Moves towards Aluminum Recycling, Biofuel in Second Year [VIDEO]

After a tough first year, Green VI is stepping up their green efforts to promote environmental conservation and the use of renewable energy technology in the Virgin Islands with several new projects and a move to use biofuel at their glass studio at Cane garden Bay.

Director Charlotte McDevitt told JTV NEWs the Green VI project is receiving funding this year from UNESCO which will go towards training and recycling programmes. She said a major step for the organization this year is using old cooking oil as biofuel instead of propane for the furnace at the glass studio.

The organization recently implemented a pilot aluminum recycling project with Floyd Stoutt at Sea Cow’s Bay to use his metal crusher to test its ability to crush aluminum, in the hopes of expanding the program into an island-wide project. The Director said it is the little things that we do that will make a change in our environment.

Green VI celebrated their one year anniversary on Earth Day under the theme,

A Billion Acts Of Green around the World. Green VI launched a Glass Studio at Myetts, Cane Garden Bay to recycle glass waste from surrounding restaurants turning them into recycled glass items, such as the green frogs where were presented to sponsors of the green VI project. In addition to partnering with Government to develop a recycling system for the BVI, Green VI is pushing for government to revise its current legislation that restricts the use of renewable energy in the BVI, wants to ban the use of plastic bags and encourage use of hybrid vehicles.
