Buddy’s Pizza, president, Robert Jacobs is very excited about this project. Jacobs stated “I love Detroit, the Dossin Great Lakes Museum, the waterfront and what it has to offer, it is important that the natural resources are preserved.
“Since 1970 the Alliance for the Great Lakes has worked 100% to protect and restore the Great Lakes, but cannot do it alone,” said Jonas Smith of Chicago, sustainable business director at the Alliance for the Great Lakes. For more than 40 years, the independent citizen’s organization has been devoted to protecting the Great Lakes against threats like pollution, invasive species, such as the Asian Carp and wasteful water use.
Buddy’s Pizza a business made famous in the Great Lakes State and known as “one of the best pizzas” according to Pure Michigan, Buddy’s Pizza set to unveil its first Made in Michigan Great Lakes Pizza Collection. These new pizzas inspired by the lakes themselves, each feature Buddy’s original crust and the Motor City Cheese Blend.
For each pizza from the Great Lakes Pizza Collection sold, Buddy’s will donate $1 to the Alliance for the Great Lakes to assist in efforts to support the eco-system of a Pure Michigan environment.
The pizzas are the Lake Huron, Lake Ontario, Lake Michigan, Lake Erie, and Lake Superior.
Robert Jacobs went on to say that “There is no better way to help contribute to the future of our state than dedicate a collection of pizzas and portion of the profits to an organization fully dedicated to the lakes. We are proud to partner with the Alliance for the Great Lakes. “
Another project that the Alliance for the Great Lakes is involved in is the habitat restoration on the shorelines of Detroit, Chicago, New York, Cleveland and Milwaukee with a grant pending with the (NOAA) National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration.
