Guest blogger Shelly-Ann Dunkley, founder of ECCO Magazine speaks on why she started ECCO.
When I was first asked to write an account on why I decided to publish a magazine on environmental awareness in Jamaica, I wasn’t sure what to write. I have always loved the outdoors. Growing up in Jamaica causes one to appreciate nature a bit more I believe. With over 300 days of beautiful beach weather what is there not to love? As little children we were allowed to play with friends outside for hours. I remember rolling down the hillside with my cousins when I visited them in Frankfield, Clarendon, playing ‘dung by the riva’, running after ducks and at times being chased by ducks. In high school we would sit on the ground eating our lunches in our immaculate white uniforms that never seemed to get dirty. As a young girl every plum season I would religiously climb “MY” plum tree. I would sit for a bit in the tree eating plums, not because I didn’t want to share (of course not), but to enjoy nature. On trips to Ochi there was nothing more majestic and beautiful than Fern Gully.
This long held appreciation plus my experiences living in the US led to a growing awareness of just how important our natural resources are to a sustainable future for our island. There have been numerous studies done that have shown the impact humans have on the environment. From my perspective it is useless to debate whether Global Warming or Climate Change is in fact happening when there’s clear evidence that humankind is polluting the planet. In Jamaica every day we see garbage thrown in fordings; plastic bottles, plastic bags and other types of refuse line roadways. Some get there with the help of the wind. Some get there by being deliberately thrown. Yet, regardless of how the rubbish gets there, it’s there and something has to be done. We need to educate ourselves and others on the effect this behaviour is having and will continue to have on us and our natural environment for years to come. Our behaviour impacts and pollutes the water, air, ecosystems, marine life and our natural environment. We have to begin to preserve the natural beauty of our ‘land of wood and water’ for our children and our children’s children.
