There are a number of ways in which we can begin to live in a more environmentally conscious way in Trinidad & Tobago. There are organisations and companies that are working towards facilitating the change to a more 'green' T&T that some people may not be aware of. If you belong to an organisation or company that would like to be listed on this page, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org so that we can include you. Here's a list of small changes you can make right now that will help to bring about a big change.
We are addressing this petition to the Ministry of Energy and Energy Industries, Government of Trinidad and Tobago to support the growth and development of the renewable energy industry. We are calling for them to make a change in legislation to facilitate homeowners implementing solar panels; provide subsidies for renewable energy businesses and remove VAT tariffs to encourage home installations; and carry out large scale national projects to produce wind and solar energy locally.SIGN THE PETITION
Styrofoam, also known as Polystyrene, a commonly used product in Trinidad and Tobago has many detrimental impacts to to our health and the environment. Especially when heated, toxic chemicals can seep out of it contaminating our food and can result in negative impacts on human health. Furthermore, Styrofoam is often discarded as litter, polluting our streets, oceans and bays, takes hundreds of years to decompose, and is known to break into small pieces choking animals. Other smaller islands have made the necessary steps towards implementing policies to ban these harmful products from being used.SIGN THE PETITION
