The Ministry with responsibility for Climate Resilience, and by extension the Government of Grenada, invites everyone to be more conscious and deliberate about the choices they make on a daily basis pertaining to electric equipment including light bulbs, how they use their irons, stoves, ovens and refrigerators; and how they use diesel and gasoline for transportation.
The government also encourages the public to explore and engage in the use of sustainable forms of transportation.
