Sustainability on Star

The Green Gosport Initiative

Drawing on a long tradition of creative resource use and conservation at the Isles of Shoals, the Green Gosport Initiative is Star Island’s sustainability program. Named for the original fishing village on the island, this is a reference to the endurance, resilience, and creative spirit of the island communities that have called Star Island home.

As an island with limited resources, Star has long understood how to live within its means. This need for self-reliance has shaped the character of the island’s communities over time and fostered on Star a creative, can-do spirit. Rather than accept paucity at face-value, Shoalers have risen to the challenge, building dynamic and enduring communities over several eras.
