Greening the Caribbean launched its operations in 2014 with the mission of protecting the environment and preserving human health in the Caribbean ... one island at a time ... starting in Saint Lucia.
We work to reduce environmental harm in the Caribbean by providing waste-to-landfill minimization and recycling services to the private sector which includes collection and transport of 'non recyclable' waste a.k.a. 'garbage' to the landfill. Consulting services are also provided regionally. And as a triple bottom line business, Greening the Caribbean spearheads several action-oriented environmental programs and events designed to educate and empower youth to reduce their dependency and use of single use plastic items.
Our expertise is in designing and implementing sound climate smart solutions to the waste disposal crisis within Caribbean small island developing states (SIDS) which contributes to 11 of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
With a dedicated team working across the disciplines of waste management and materials recovery, e-waste and other end of life materials and equipment are de-manufactured at our on-island materials recovery center. The recyclable fractions are extracted, sorted and inventoried for subsequent export into the international manufacturing value chain.
