Here’s my award winning short film about an amazing group of people who pick up the garbage in exchange for keeping the dogs on the beach.
Featuring the great music of Big Vince and the Phat Cats.
What weighs 20,000 pounds and takes nearly 4,000 people to move it? The Garbage on Jupiter Beach. 15 years ago a local resident Anita Lankler made a deal with the City of Jupiter. You let our dogs on the beach and we’ll pick up the garbage. This little group grew into a membership of 4,000 plus and became the “Friends of Jupiter Beach.” Once a month hundreds of people, 6 to 86, from fifteen zip codes surrounding Palm Beach County, converge onto Jupiter Beach… to pick up the garbage.
Stylin music provided by Big Vince and the Phat Cats.

In honor of Mother Earth if you can’t get to an event don’t despair. Grab a bag and head to to your closet park or beach and fill that bag up with garbage. Imagine if the entire Martin County did this. The entire 148 thousand of us (or so). Imagine if all of Florida did this. Imagine if the whole US did this. Imagine if the whole world did this.
Lets do it!
Happy earth day mother earth
