** BREAKING NEWS **

Bullsugar is announcing the debut of a new initiative, Vote Water, that will spearhead clean-water voter guides for the 2020 election season. Vote Water is a nonpartisan, grassroots effort designed to help Floridians identify clean-water candidates committed to policymaking that addresses Florida’s toxic bloom crises and the restoration of America’s Everglades.

Voter guides will be posted later this summer at VoteWater.org, and will identify candidates whose statements, records, and questionnaire responses show commitment to clean-water policies and a refusal to allow contributions from the sugarcane industry to influence their decision making.

OUR MISSION

Help Florida Heal is a nonpartisan group of Florida citizens demanding that our politicians take action to help Florida heal from the red tide and green algae poisoning our state and provide resources to further knowledge and actions available.

The political system has failed and Lake Okeechobee is dying. 

Runoff has killed all of the sea grass south of the St Lucie to Miami, and is killing the Caloosahatche, Charlotte Harbour and feeding red tide. This isn’t about the next event, this is about new regulations for south florida water management. We want accountability for clean water, we want effective EPA standards for the canals to prevent degradation of water quality. 

The only solution is a bottom up wave of all 12,000,000 voters demanding our leaders support a clean water agenda. If we fail Florida, our water, our sea life, our way of life – they all die.

Each one of us can make a difference. Together we make change.

BOLD NEW PLAN

We have a bold new plan and it means WORKING TOGETHER to create change. The elections are over, Florida’s voters have a new Senator, Governor, and Commissioner of Agriculture. Can they reverse the course of history and return our River of Grass to the Everglades.

The River of grass

We need your help to spread the word. It’s easy to feel outmanned by corporations and special interests. Share the video and ask your friends to do the same. WE HAVE A PLAN. We need a river of grass to run south to the Everglades, cleaning the water of the nutrients feeding the red tide and algae blooms poisoning our state.

RIVER OF GRASS: SUMMER UPDATE

A reminder of the damage done to our rivers, lakes and estuaries last year. Now, the red/green algae is back, and while the red tide hasn’t appeared in Boca Grande yet, sewage, phosphate and fertilizers are still present and feeding the algae and red tide. Florida can’t afford another 2018…Tell your candidate you’re a clean water voter.

RIVER OF GRASS: FALL UPDATE

The election is one year away. How will you vote? Animals are still dying. Red tide is appearing on the coasts of Florida again. Lake Okeechobee is blanketed in algae. Have you called your representative yet? We can’t afford another 2018. Become a clean water voter.  Demand your candidate support clean water.
