Experience Dominica – The Nature Island: Dominica Vacations | Exotic Vacations | Honeymoon Destination

Dominica weekly is a personal weblog about the nature island of Dominica.


In Dominica we’re fortunate to be surrounded by such a natural green environment, but shame to say that most of us Dominicans don’t recognize the essence of “green”. The essence of “Green” can’t be easily captured in a narrow definition, because it encompasses a range of experience. It’s an approach to life-home, family, community and business – that centers on an awareness of our impact on the planet and its people.

Dominica Weekly’s definition:
Green= “Applying environmental values to benefit people and the planet.”

Some examples of green values:

  • Environmental Preservation
  • Fair Trade
  • Ecological Design
  • Organic Products
  • Sustainable development
  • Holistic health
  • Renewable energy
  • Clean tech

Below are some Green Business definitions

Green Loop
“[Green businesses are] conscientious companies who are committed to environmental stewardship and social responsibility.”

Green Festivals
Businesses that “validate a business model that demonstrates that profits and caring for the community and the environment go hand-in-hand.”

WorldChanging
“We can build businesses that embrace sustainability, openness, and fairness not as a sideline ethical consideration, but as the path to profits.”

Green MBA
“Solutions that promote financial viability, ecological sustainability, and social justice.”

If you’re looking to learn about running a green business or how you can help in keeping your environment green, these sites have lots of invaluable information you can use to make your business more environmental friendly. I was amaze to learn about the many ways businesses can commit to environmental values and social responsibilities.

I think one might be amazed at the ability to make a living in this day and age with such a focus on all things ‘green’. The Dominican government would probably be keen on cooperating with anyone willing to spearhead initiatives. Dominica has an ever growing garbage management problem and the team who could come up with a feasible solution (composting, recycling) would be doing the island a huge service, let alone the environment.

If the many poorer nations of the Caribbean basin acted as one in demanding that packaging on imported goods be biodegradable, it would be wonderful.
