THERE IS NO magical place called “away” when it comes to the disposal of refuse. Speaking at the launch of the Green Roots project of JCI Barbados at the Frank Collymore Hall this morning, executive director of the Future Centre Trust Cherice Gibson, reminded people that improperly discarded items eventually found their way back to humans in some form. The Green Roots pilot project was launched on May 21 and concludes in June 2015. It is a series of initiatives that bring attention to the environment.
