"'Going Green": It's become a catch phrase...
But there are some people who talk about going green..and others who really do.
We'll show you how a little imagination and a lot of concern for mother nature, can add up to helping the environment!
Without a word on it, this vanity plate speaks volumes.
"The green plate being a blank green plate, actually what I think it is like a live strong bracelet."
William Djubin came up with the unusual idea after scuba diving..it's his way of "going green."
"I moved to Jupiter and Jupiter had unbelieveable water quality and visibility 3 years ago.."
"Over the past 3 years it's steadlily been on a decline."
So he got the idea to help environmentally friendly organizations thru his own form of fundraising: a green vanity plate purchased thru his website, http://www.mygreenlicenseplate.com/.
"The plates started 8 months ago, the idea came to me to try to figure out a way to create additional funds for the small sanctuaries and foundations."
"Are the plates themselves environmentally friendly?? What are they made of? Actually, they are made from 100% recycled milk jugs."
There are about 200 plates on cars cruising the highways in palm beach county.. Laurie Shaw is driving one of them.
"I'd like to see something where we're walking our talk and doing what we need to do and not just normal things that people say they do, recycling here and pulling cans out of here and I believe its an important product."
This man is hoping that thru his website--and more of "these" on cars in the area, he can help the environment, one plain, green plate at a time.
"The state of our ocean, the global warming over all, concern for the environment and being proud that you are displaying something like this..if if isn't this..do something else in some other forum or some other sector.."
The plates cost ten dollars each. Two dollars goes to the cost of producing each plate..the rest is divided between William's organization, and the organization the buyer chooses.
