Dominica joins the rest of the world in observing Earth Day 2015, on Wednesday, April 22.
Earth Day is intended to inspire awareness and appreciation for the Earth’s environment.
This year the day is celebrated under the theme “It’s Our Turn to Lead,” with a goal of promoting environmental awareness, developing sustainable initiatives and galvanizing every human to pledge acts of green:
• Reduce energy consumption
• Start Composting
• Stop Using Disposable Plastic
• Buy local produce or grow your own
• Save energy at home by choosing energy-saving appliances
• Go Solar
• Protect Our Clean Air
• Support Renewable Energy
As part of activities for Earth Day 2015, The Discover Dominica Authority has partnered with Rosalie Bay Resort in hosting a beach clean up, at Rosalie, on Saturday, April 25, 2015 from 8:30am – 12:30pm.
Discover Dominica Authority wishes to urge the local community to observe the day by being cognitive of certain best practices which are in keeping with sustainable tourism practices to ultimately preserve our Earth for future generation.
Some practices are as simple as reducing our individual energy consumption and stop littering.
