Owners, Justin and Anna Marino believe, “the secret to overcoming the plastic pollution crisis lies with educating people about alternative sustainable solutions.  It’s easy to toss plastic and other unsustainable habits from your lifestyle when you know how to replace them with something even better!”  ALX Dog Walk Founder, Julie Chapman added, “we can impact climate change by adopting new plastic-free habits.  Small changes really can make a big difference overall.”
