SORT BY Relevancy
Can green enterprise revitalize America’s most distressed communities? Meet entrepreneur Tyrone Mullins and his peers in low-income urban neighborhoods who tell their stories, speak the truth about waste, and mobilize many thousands of residents to recycle and compost for the first time. By showing documentary stories and organizing discussions with property managers, community leaders, public officials and policy makers, our work secures contracts and creates jobs, reducing landfill waste by 50%. Each Green Streets worker recycles approximately 20,000 gallons of waste per month, and becomes a steward of his or her community.
In neighborhoods plagued by drugs and turf conflicts, enterprising young men and women who used to think they were unemployable are becoming beacons of hope.

The Barbados and Carolinas Connection with Rhoda Green
Most Barbadians today are unaware or disinterested about their linkages to the Carolinas. However, Rhoda Green recognizes that the past impacts the present each day. The present, however, can promote forgetfulness, ignorance and sometimes denial. This reality motivates her to provide a vehicle for sharing, collaboration and an opportunity to better understand this shared history and the lessons learned from it. This inspiration and passion influenced her decision to become the Founder and Chair of Development for The Barbados and Carolina Legacy Foundation. http://www.barbadoscarolinas.org
Mrs. Green was born in Bardados, West Indies and resides in Charleston, SC with her husband and children. She currently serves as the honorary Consul for Barbados in South Carolina.
Her work with the Barbados Carolina Connection led to the Twinning of Speightostown, Barbados and Charleston, South Carolina in 1998. That was followed with bringing the Barbados Tourism Authority and SCETV together to produce a documentary that is shown on ETV and is entitled, ”From Barbados to Carolina”.
