Come clean-up the bayou this Saturday with this month’s Greentrepreneur: Bayou Kayaks!

bayou_kayaks-1311705885We all enjoy the benefits of Bayou St. John, and now is the time to give back. LifeCity and Bayou Kayaks are teaming up for the upcoming Bayou Klean-Up.

Rhonda Ardoin started Bayou Kayaks this year to pursue her passion, provide a green service in the community, and help others take advantage of our surrounding water resources.

“My goal is to make a big impact on the community while leaving a small footprint on the environment,” says Ardoin.

Bayou Kayaks is one of the most recent certified businesses in the area who are committed to social and environmentally responsible practices. Not only does her day-to-day operations enforce a “leave no trace” policy, Ardoin is going above and beyond by organizing a free kayaking event to clean up the bayou this Saturday.

Not only will the Bayou Klean-Up help beautify the area, it will increase community involvement, allow business and customers to interact together, strengthen the image of the area’s small businesses, and create a sense of pride and accomplishment within the community. It’s a win-win for everyone! Also there are prizes for the following categories:

Prize Categories:
1. Largest Group
2. Largest Business Group
3. Largest Non Business Group
4. Most trash picked up from individual
5. Largest item recovered from the bayou

Directions for the event can be found on Facebook:
