Vero Goes Zero
After teaming up with Indian River County and the City of Vero Beach to pilot this novel opportunity, Beach Baskets have become the brand-new best friend for anyone visiting the beach. You can find these free baskets available at public beach access points encouraging beachgoers to pick up debris while they visit the beach. These baskets have shown to be a cost-effective tool for engaging both residents and area visitors as stewards of the environment.

Become Plastic Free!
Thanks to funding from Surfing Evolution and Preservation Foundation, our sustainability team works with small businesses to help them take the next step in their path to sustainability. We want our community to provide excellent alternatives to single-use plastics because each piece of plastic we use will never disappear or decompose. By using an alternative to single-use plastic for common products like cups, containers, bags, and straws, we are greatly reducing the amount of harmful plastic that escapes into our oceans and increasing our ability to compost or reuse items for a healthier future. Businesses who have committed to the process of eliminating single-use plastics are considered Vero Goes Zero businesses and should be supported for the ongoing dedication to our environment and saving sea turtles from the threats of human-caused plastic debris.
