How it Started

In May 2013 Past President Kadi Merren-Pentney of the Kiwanis Club of Grand Cayman contacted the Presidents of the Rotary and Lions Clubs on island about starting a joint initiative to do a project together that was too big for any of the clubs to do on their own.
Immediately all club Presidents were on board and together they decided recycling was an important issue that they felt residence needed more information on to make it easier to reduce and reuse!
Immediately after their first social with all clubs uniting in July 2013, Gina McBryan of Rotary Sunrise 'joined in' to start a Facebook page and start promoting recycling and the Rotaract Club of Grand Cayman and Business & Professional Women's Club also showed their support of the project.
The initiative started with two supermarket awareness campaigns where all clubs came together in bright green shirts to hand out business cards with information on how and where you can recycle in Cayman and are now starting competitions in all of the schools to encourage our youth to recycle!

Landfill

Landfilling is Not a Sustainable Solution

Landfills are the largest source of human caused methane, a greenhouse gas 21 times more powerful than carbon dioxide. The "US Environmental Protection Agency" admits all landfill liners will eventually leak and their toxic leachate, or garbage juice, can seep into and contaminate soil and groundwater supplies.
Please, do your part Join In and recycle the following items:
