PARADISE KEY MEDIA 
Jared Jacobs has a life goal to create a campaign for the Everglades Watershed similar to the one he started in the small town of the Portage Watershed, Ohio.  Living in a community facilitating environmental leaders, influencing high fashion, reaching out to the inner city and disconnected communities, we need to find innovative ways to integrate sustainable practices into the free market. The Paradise Key campaign goes beyond education and outreach, it builds a community.
