VIRP Campaign!

Virgin Islands

This campaign is geared toward cleaning up the Virgin Islands! We will dedicate a 5k run/walk to a significant concept – such as recycling, composting, green energy, etc. – that is long lasting enough for the idea to take hold in the hearts and minds of all islanders, new, old or wannabes.

Please vote on a slogan below:

  1. Love island dem
  2. Our Islands – Our Future
  3. Beauty-it’s who we are.
  4. Responsible Earth Stewards
  5. Island Proud
  6. My address: the most beautiful corner of Earth
