Environmental Alliance takes aim at trash

Guam - The Guam Environmental Alliance is a non-profit organization developed to create and facilitate projects that promote community activity when it comes to the environment.  The organization recently kicked-off its beautification projects in the village of Talofofo.

According to board member Elaina Todd, the group will be planning several events for the year with efforts to rid the island of graffiti and trash. The group recently painted six bus stops in the village with the help of the mayor's office and other groups on island.  "I think there's a lot of graffiti especially in the village of talofofo. There's no litter or garbage. They do such a good job to clean their village but we want to do something so we can enhance what it looks like. A lot of tourists drive through this village and we just want to make it beautiful for our village also," said Todd.

The group decided to create murals on the bus stops by promoting wildlife and Guam's culture. Todd says she's hoping other people will jump on the bandwagon to help keep Guam green and clean.  "Hopefully, we'll have another project like this. We're going to be helping with the Liberation Day recycling and then towards the end of the year, we want to do a whole tree-planting project so be on the lookout," she said.
