Vision Statement: We are committed to creating a healed world that is healthy and environmentally conscious. We believe that bringing awareness to our community will positively affect the future of our planet.
We are proposing that we minimize the use of plastic water bottles in our Community. Water bottles and Plastics in general are detrimental to our environment and overall health of our people and our planet. Our goal is to spread awareness of the effects of the toxic chemicals being consumed, the damage to the environment in regards to landfills, global warming, marine life, and humanity.
Our main goal is to have a Ban the Bottle Day on Dec 28th in Palm Beach County. It will be a big event and we will be having several smaller fundraising events before the big day. We plan on creating around 500 "Gratitude" reusable water bottles and giving them away for free to our community. We are also looking into refurbishing existing water fountains in the area with new filters and signs to spread knowledge and awareness of how we can all help to keep our planet healthy for future generations!
How we can all help to keep our planet healthy for future
We are up to big things as part of our plan and fundraising efforts!
