is a nonprofit organization located in the British Virgin Islands which works to demonstrate the principles and benefits of sustainable living in the beautiful BVI – through education and practical projects – along the themes of waste, education, energy and water.
Each year, Green V.I. and Nutmeg Designs organize our Annual CHAIR-ity 2015. Chairs made by the community from recycled, repurposed, reclaimed materials are auctioned off; and funds are used to continue our work to ‘green’ the British Virgin Islands (BVI).
Our most visible project, Green-V.I.’s Glass Studio, transforms old bottles into beautiful works of art. This year some of this recycled glass art, and related photography, from our Fragile Tings exhibit will also be auctioned.
For more information on our work visit: Green V.I.
