    Island Jamaica Green Movement
    (THE I.J.G.M) was created with the intention to reflect our true Jamaican values & pride. Our prime objective is to take action, by promoting a cleaner and greener (JM) environment.

    The Aluminum Mining industry in Jamaica is an incredible danger to the environment and the people.

    The pollution from the mining industry effects the air the water,and it also soaks into the soil making the entire area impossible for any life.
    Jamaica also has one of the highest percentage of plant species in danger of extinction in the world.
    Environmental concerns in this ecoregion are characteristic of other populated Caribbean islands. These include deforestation, soil erosion, population pressures, and lack of public awareness concerning conservation. But Bauxite (aluminum ore) mining is a Majer problem for Jamaica, it is still having a massively dangerous and negative impact on the island’s forests, and ecosystem.

    The Bauxite Mining industry in Jamaica is profitable to foreign investors, But dangerous for Jamaica.
