Green business owners in West Palm Beach and throughout Palm Beach County can do more to help the local environment than just reduce, reuse and recycle.
You can also help preserve and protect our state’s eco-system by joining the initiative to put the Florida Water and Land Conservation Amendment on the November 2014 ballot.
More than 4,000 individual volunteers and 340 conservation and civic organizations across the state are already working for that objective and you can be one of them. They’ve banded together because severe spending cuts are jeopardizing the work Floridians have done for decades to protect miles of beaches, parks and waterways.
The Amendment will allocate less than one percent of Florida’s state budget (starting with $648 million in 2015) to keep waters clean and protect beaches, springs, wildlife habitat and other natural areas.
So far, more than half a million Floridians have signed the campaign’s petition. But to place the amendment on the November 2014 ballot, a total of 683,149 valid signatures from registered Florida voters are needed. Here’s what you can do to help:
- Go to floridawaterlandlegacy.org to volunteer, donate, endorse or get the petition. Click here for more information.
- Encourage your employees, friends and neighbors to do the same.
The Legacy Campaign only has until November 30, 2013 to gather enough signatures to get the Amendment on the ballot, so don’t wait. Take action today.
