The Floridant/10224305

LAKELAND, Fla. ~ This week, Publix associates across seven states are volunteering at over 200 organizations to promote environmental sustainability. Dwaine Stevens, Director of Community Relations at Publix, said "We're proud to do good together for the communities we serve by protecting our natural resources."

Publix is also taking steps to reduce waste and protect natural resources. Last year, the company donated $2 million to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary and the Everglades National Park. This donation has allowed water to return to areas that needed it, allowing wildlife to survive and thrive in their natural habitat.

Publix has also collaborated with Sustainable Fisheries Partnership (SFP) over the past 12 years, contributing more than $600,000 towards fishery and aquaculture improvement projects and other initiatives. They were the first U.S. retailer to join with SFP, BirdLife International and Whale and Dolphin Conservation in order to review risks from unintended catch of ocean wildlife within the seafood sourcing supply chain. Additionally, they provided support towards testing innovative new fishing gear, improving data collection and increasing monitoring to protect sharks, whales and sea turtles.
