March 11, 2022: Local 10 News: "South Florida Brothers Team Up To Restore World’s Lost Mangroves"

For over 100 years as South Florida’s coastline was developed, acres upon acres of mangroves were destroyed in the process.

In recent years we’ve begun to understand just how vital mangroves are to protecting our shores and cleaning up our waterways.

Two Palm Beach County brothers recognized that and launched a company with the goal of restoring the world’s lost mangroves.

They’re doing it by selling hats and shirts, changing the world by planting one mangrove at a time.

On the day Local 10 News met up with the brothers, as the sun rose over the historic lighthouse on the Jupiter Inlet, a team of dedicated volunteers began to plant the first of 1,000 baby mangroves on an eroding shore where these ancient trees once dominated the coastline.
