In communities across the country, America’s beverage companies are doing their part to bring real solutions to some of the biggest challenges we face. From New Haven, Conn., to Seattle and beyond we are dedicated to finding lasting solutions to a variety of issues that affect not only industry but all of us.

One of the latest examples of this is the Florida Beverage Association, which recently launched a grant program for the benefit of nonprofit groups that encourage good nutrition, physical activity, health and wellness as well as environmental sustainability.

The Florida Beverage Association grants will be given for “innovative ideas from how an individual or group introduced recycling to their community, to fitness camps in community parks to something we have never even thought of or heard of before.”

It is through local initiatives such as these that the beverage industry is helping the communities we work and live in to find new and innovative ways to encourage Americans to live a balanced and environmentally sustainable life.
