Children from the Jamaica Money Market Brokers (JMMB) nursery helped plant a vertical garden at the financial group's head office on Earth Day, observed around the world last Saturday. They reused empty plastic beverage bottles as planters, which they tied to a wooden frame. Creating the green space was “an opportunity to involve our children and teach the younger generation about the importance of caring for our environment,” the company said. “We chose to create green spaces as a way of creatively beautifying our environment, while incorporating good environmental practices such as recycling. We also encourage individuals to undertake similar projects in their homes and communities,” said senior corporate manager, JMMB Investments & Digital Services Stephenie Lugg-Lawrence. Also in observance of Earth Day, JMMB planted trees at McCann Child Care & Development Centre and Danny Williams School for the Deaf.
