Last night [Mar.31] Bermuda environmental group Greenrock hosted an Earth Hour event at City Hall, featuring green exhibitors, documentaries, healthy food options, power-generating bicycles and entertainment including local singers and fire spinners.
The Earth Hour Expo seeks to raise awareness on sustainable living in Bermuda through green exhibitors and entertainment. Greenrock management committee member Eugene Dean commented: “Living more sustainable lifestyles is something that each of us can achieve, hence our commitment to supporting initiatives of this nature as we seek to change mindsets in our island home.”
Exhibitors shared information about their sustainable products and services, including Bermuda Janitorial Supplies, BGA Wholesale Distributors, BA, Norwex Enviro Products, KBB, Thermax Bermuda, thegreenhousebermuda, PureNERGY Renewables Ltd, Butterfield & Vallis, Department of Energy and more.
Live entertainment included Joy T. Barnum, Christina Quinn, Val Sherwood, Jules & Aswad, Live Wires, Princess Black, Rivah and Gavin “Sundjata” Smith performing acoustic sets on the steps of City Hall, followed by Bermuda Donquilli, Capoeira Camarà, Fire Spinners and Dawn & The Rhythm Fire Drummers during the lights out celebration.
This year is the fourth year that Greenrock has led Earth Hour in Bermuda. Since 2007, Earth Hour has been celebrated globally by hundreds of millions of people in over 130 countries, serving as a visual referendum on the importance of a sustainable lifestyle.
