    I’d like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and our company. My name is Rudy and I head up strategic partnerships at TerraCycle. TerraCycle is a global recycling company focused on finding sustainable solutions for waste that would otherwise be disposed of through conventional methods such as incineration or landfilling. I am writing you today because TerraCycle is kindly requesting that your organization send us the rigid plastic that you collect on beaches, shorelines, and in waterways at no cost to you.

    In recognition of the fact that discarded plastic plagues our oceans, beaches and waterways, TerraCycle is working to collect rigid plastic waste from beaches and shorelines. The materials will then be used to create new fully-recyclable products. This is a fully-sponsored program meaning the costs of shipping, processing and recycling for this program will all be covered by TerraCycle and our partners. Free UPS shipping labels can be attained through one’s TerraCycle account.

    During this first phase of the project we are bringing together a North American supply chain to ensure that we can collect large enough quantities of material to ensure the viability of the project for the foreseeable future, which is where we ask for the help of your organization to bolster our collection efforts. I would welcome an opportunity to speak with you in person about the program and the potential for collaboration between our teams. I have attached some relevant materials for your reference.

    All the best,

    My name is Savanna Kennedy, and I am in seventh grade at North Broward Preparatory School in Coconut Creek, Florida. I am currently finishing a project for National History Day (, a national competition which requires students to conduct research on a topic of their choice. The theme this year is “Taking a Stand” and the topic of MY project is Marjory Stoneman Douglas and her efforts to raise awareness of how the straightening of the Kissimmee River affected the Everglades.

    I have contacted Florida Crystals to get information on their view point, but they have not contacted me back. I would like the opportunity to interview someone in your organization in order to get more information regarding how the straightening of the KIssimmee River affected the everglades. This interview could be conducted via email, phone or Skype, and would truly enhance my project. I look forward to hearing from you.

    Since my first two interviews fell through, I only have the beginning of this week to conclude my project. The fair is this Friday, Feb. 24th.

    Dear Friends of the Everglades,

    My name is Karla, I came across your group after visiting this past November, after learning about some of the projects you do to support the park. My husband and I are artists traveling through all 59 national parks and along the way we’re documenting them through illustrations, photography and creative stories.

    Today we shared the unlikely love story between an Everglades alligator and Biscayne manatee – a bit of fun – and we also shared the poster from Everglades. Would you be interested in seeing the story?

    If you enjoy it, maybe we can send you a copy of the poster to share with your community. We are donating 10% of sales from prints to the friends groups of each park (set aside and donated annually).

    Many thanks!

    I am the Gifted Youth and Leadership Coordinator for American Mensa, the High Intelligence Organization. Our annual convention moves throughout the country each year and this year it will be held at The Diplomat Hotel in Hollywood Florida. I am looking for outreach educational opportunities that could come to us at the hotel. Unfortunately we do not have the option to travel to your location. Would there be any opportunities for us to work together this coming Friday July 7th? I would have 3 groups of kid (less than 30 in a group) ages 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12. These are exceptionally bright kids and they love to learn and get new information. We would love to work with you if there is any way we could.

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    I am organizing a Team Meeting in October and wondered if you had opportunities for group volunteering activities to help with your work for an afternoon (4-5 hours). We would really like to give back to the community and believe the important work you do would be something we could help with. There would be approximately 50-60 people.

    Please let me know.

    Many thanks

    Hi Alan:

    The Junior Orange Bowl Creative Writing Committee is wondering if Friends of the Everglades would like to make a few remarks at our Awards Ceremony Sun, Feb 12, 2:00 pm at Books & Books? Our theme this year is celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks.

    “At this, the 100th

    Anniversary of the U.S.

    National Parks, What Can We

    Do to Protect Our Parks in the

    Years to Come?”

    Thanks in advance
