MIAMI- This past Saturday, the Lloyd Jones corporate office partnered with Clean Miami Beach, a Miami-based nonprofit, to reduce pollution in the Miami Beach area. The group, which was joined by Florida Sea Turtle Company and Bonefly, removed 1,928 pounds of garbage from the Julia Tuttle Causeway, including more than 600 single-use plastic water bottles.
Clean Miami Beach is a nonprofit organization dedicated to ridding habitats of single-use plastic and other pollutants. It achieves this goal by educating the community, advocating for sustainable business and government practices, and organizing beach/wetland clean-ups. Since its inception, Clean Miami Beach has removed more than 34,000 pounds of trash from the Miami shoreline.
“As a company that’s headquartered in Miami, it feels good to give back to our beaches and community,” said Greishka Campo, vice president of human resources for Lloyd Jones. “I’m grateful to work somewhere where philanthropy is such an integral part of the company culture.”
The clean-up was organized as a part of Lloyd Jones’ established environmental, social, and governance (ESG) programming, Impactful Investing. Impactful Investing remains at the forefront of all Lloyd Jones activities, as the company strives to make a positive impact in the real estate industry through both corporate and on-site programs.
“With many of our Impactful Investing efforts, we’re affecting change on a national scale,” Greishka said, “but this team activity was special because it was right in our own backyard.”
