Join the Suncoast Rise Above Plastics Coalition in supporting St. Petersburg businesses and our local environment! The City of St. Petersburg passed plastic straw and polystyrene regulations that will take full effect in 2020. The Suncoast Rise Above Plastics Coalition is proud of our city and its leadership, but our work here is not done! We want these ordinances to be successful, and to benefit everybody. As such, we are working to provide outreach to local businesses to make the transition easy, informed, and cost efficient. We've been out talking to businesses since February, and we need your help to finish reaching them all. Our goal is to reach every business by September 1st, so that each of them has ample time to make any necessary changes. To do that we need as many business-and-ocean-loving boots on the ground as possible. Do you love supporting local businesses? Do you love making change in your community? Come out to Pinellas Ale Works and learn how to make a difference!
