|Gary and Jane Gibbons of Tampa say there's a better way!|
350 joined Hands Across the Sand Saturday at America’s #1 beach destination, St. Pete Beach. For the 3rd year in a row the event was hosted by the Tradewinds, Tampa Bay’s best known beach resort, at their newly rebranded Guy Harvey Outpost, the first such beach venue to incorporate marine conservation art and activities into the visitor’s experience.
|20 cyclists rode from the Bay to the Gulf to say NO to Oil.|
20 people rode 14 miles across St. Petersburg from Tampa Bay to the Gulf of Mexico in a Sierra Club outing that showed Tradewinds’ staff that bikes only require 1/10 as much space to park. They rode to counter the American Petroleum Institute message that Floridia must allow drilling off its pristine beaches to compensate for the state’s high level of oil consumption. Floridians joined Hands on the beaches of Tampa Bay Saturday to tell Big Oil that, actually, we can save more oil than we could ever drill for in the gulf. From bicycles to trolleys to EV’s, the technology is here that will help protect our local economy's #1 source of jobs and income, coastal tourism and fishing.
