Who is a green person in the Caribbean? It’s someone who is doing his or her part to help the environment — from conservation to renewable energy. And for Earth Day 2015, we decided to put together a list of the Caribbean’s 12 “greenest people,” those who are helping to make a big difference in protecting the region’s greatest — and most important resource: its environment. These are the people making the Caribbean a greener place right now. Who do you think is making the biggest contribution? Tell us in the comments section.
