Update the Sunshine State is a project created by husband and wife duo, Michael and Mary Tamez.

Our mission is to make Florida the greenest state in the United States.

Our goal is to change the way we think about waste, so we created a petition to ban plastic bags and Styrofoam in Florida.

We want to collect 100,000 signatures so that we can bring the petition to governor Rick Scott.

It’s not a matter of climate change. Nor is it a matter of global warming. It’s a matter of sustaining and protecting the same planet all humans call home.

It's time to take action and contribute in a more positive and healthy way looking forward to our future generations.
