The Emerald Coast is blessed with a number of environmentally engaged citizens groups or associations with particular and often parallel interests. The Alliance brings together like-minded active, committed civic and other groups, businesses and environmentally engaged institutions to support concerted grass root actions to achieve a healthier environment and plastics free waters along the Emerald Coast through environmental stewardship, education/outreach, business engagement, and broad community involvement.
The Alliance seeks to enhance the prospects for the success of participants’ own programs while bringing people and groups together to ensure a better environment for all.
Participants are pursuing collaborative efforts with regard to:
reducing marine debris,
promoting environmentally friendly business practices,
heightening public awareness through education and outreach,
sharing information on legislative and regulatory developments, and
undertaking joint projects where interests coincide.
The Alliance will work in parallel and partnership with established government programs and efforts.
