BJ's Hike for a Plastics-Free Future

Billie Jean (BJ) Baldwin, the founder of the Plastics-Free Initiative (PFI), will be trekking through 1000 miles of the Appalachian Trail without using ANY single-use plastics in order to draw attention to the impacts that plastics have on the environment
—all at the young age of 69 years old!

On Earth Day 2021, she’ll begin her plastic-free journey through the Appalachian Trail, starting at the base of Springer Mountain in Georgia and ending in Harpers Ferry, West Virginia. Through her hike, she hopes to raise funds that will help PFI sustain itself and launch an educational and community awareness program.

100% of your contributions will go towards supporting the Plastics-Free Initiative through the Woman’s Club of Coconut Grove, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.

Welcome to the Plastics-Free Initiative Coalition (PFI)

The PFI consists of a coalition of residents, local business leaders, civic organizations, and educational and faith institutions across the state united in the fight against plastic pollution.

Plastics are all around us and a part of our everyday life. But single-use plastics, which you use for a few minutes and then discard, have created a major pollution problem.
