Florida Realtors Teams Up to Clean Up State Waterways

From July 4-11, 2020, thousands of Florida Realtors gathered in their communities to clean up lakes, beaches and other waterways.

Florida Realtors put out the call asking members across the state to join a weeklong effort to clean up Florida's waterways.

And, as with all community-service projects, our Realtors rose to the occasion.

Realtor associations — from the Panhandle to the Keys, from the First Coast to the Gulf Coast — organized events at the local level that resulted in many tons of marine and land debris being collected over the seven-day period.

Florida Realtors distributed more than 1,400 Realtor-branded face masks, helping to make sure gatherings kept safety at the forefront.

Florida's beaches are famous throughout the world, and the beautiful springs and waterways that call Florida home are a key reason so many people are moving here. Our state also relies on tourism to help power our large and robust economy. Whether it’s the white sandy beaches, the emerald coastline, or crystal-clear freshwater springs — a healthy environment is key to our overall economy.

This cleanup effort reflects Florida Realtors' dedication to environmentally sound development and the preservation of the state's natural resources.
