Beaches Town Center is Going GREEN

Maybe you’ve seen them at events around town or heard their founder, Anne Marie Moquin, on WJCT First Coast Connect-- wherever you look, it’s not hard to find traces of Beaches Go Green.
 
Founded by Moquin with a mission to save our environment in mind, BGG strives to provide information and awareness on Earth-friendly practices to not only the Beaches community, but all of Jacksonville. From preaching the perils of single-use plastics to hosting their ‘Movies That Matter’ series in the Courtyard at 200 First Street, they’re changing minds on what it means to ‘go green’.
Being centrally located between the Neptune and Atlantic beaches, a partnership between Beaches Town Center and Beaches Go Green only seemed natural. From educating merchants on greener practices, like refusing to offer plastic straws or making the move to recycled, all-natural shopping bags, we’ve paired with BGG to make our little area as eco-friendly as possible!
 
So what are some of the things BTCxBGG have accomplished so far? Keep scrolling to take find out!

North Beach Kick Off to Golf 2018
Striving to make this event as eco-friendly as possible, BGG supplied the crowds with hydration from their ‘Water Monster’- a giant vat that saves 1,000 plastic water bottles and worked tirelessly to make sure all recyclables made their way to the appropriate receptacles. In an effort to cut down on single-use plastic cups, we collaborated with them on SIC cups that were available for purchase and able to be used in the Craft Beer Village.

The DONNA Marathon 2019
One of the official partners of the DONNA marathon, BGG was out in the streets working hard on recycle patrol and sent a huge amount of recyclables off to be reused!

Coastal Carnivale 2019
THE party of the year was a huge success-- and green, too! BGG ensured that the event was plastic-free with reusable utensils and serving wares and all-natural bamboo stirrers for beverages. In addition to recycling and composting, BGG also donated 6 large tins of leftover food to Mission House, Inc.

Lucky’s Bags for Change 2019
After a community vote and huge push from BGG, Beaches Town Center was excited to become one of Lucky’s Bags for Change for the current quarter! Anytime you use your reusable bag when shopping at Lucky’s, you’ll receive a wooden dime that can then be put towards raising funds for recycle receptacles to be placed around Beaches Town Center!
