Solarback and Changing Lives of Boca Raton Hosts Beach Cleanup

The event honored Global Recycling Day on March 18.

Solarback LLC, an environmentally and socially conscious solar energy initiative based in Boca Raton, is collaborating with the nonprofit organization Changing Lives of Boca Raton to provide opportunities for individuals experiencing homelessness to earn money while contributing to the planet’s welfare. On Sunday, March 17, in honor of Global Recycling Day on March 18, Solarback hired many resilient locals to participate in a community-wide beach cleanup. The event was attended by Solarback’s co-founders, families, and members of the larger community, with 35 participants, including five from Changing Lives.

Solarback provided participants with T-shirts, boxed water, gloves, trash sticks, and biodegradable bags. The effort inspired some of the beachgoers to join in. Although the Solarback team encountered people who were unaware of Global Recycling Day, they were able to educate them about it.

Solarback specializes in leasing and refurbishing underutilized commercial rooftops and converting them into solar farms. This creates a leasable, tenanted floor out of a previously empty, unprofitable rooftop, all at no cost. By replacing conventional, “dirty” energy sources with Solarback’s solar arrays, buildings and businesses can generate additional passive revenue and harness clean, carbon-free energy without incurring any cost to the building owner.

Changing Lives is committed to improving the lives of homeless women and men in South Florida. The organization offers essential resources, basic needs, health and wellness referrals, mentorship, and employment placement, among other things. Its primary objective is to assist these individuals in transitioning from a state of hopelessness to hopefulness and, ultimately, to achieve independent and self-sustaining living.

BIOGRAPHY

Drew Limsky joined Lifestyle Media Group in August 2020 as Editor-in-Chief of South Florida Business & Wealth. His first issue of SFBW, October 2020, heralded a reimagined structure, with new content categories and a slew of fresh visual themes. “As sort of a cross between Forbes and Robb Report, with a dash of GQ and Vogue,” Limsky says, “SFBW reflects South Florida’s increasingly sophisticated and dynamic business and cultural landscape.”

Limsky, an avid traveler, swimmer and film buff who holds a law degree and Ph.D. from New York University, likes to say, “I’m a doctor, but I can’t operate—except on your brand.” He wrote his dissertation on the nonfiction work of Joan Didion. Prior to that, Limsky received his B.A. in English, summa cum laude, from Emory University and earned his M.A. in literature at American University in connection with a Masters Scholar Award fellowship.

Limsky came to SFBW at the apex of a storied career in journalism and publishing that includes six previous lead editorial roles, including for some of the world’s best-known brands. He served as global editor-in-chief of Lexus magazine, founding editor-in-chief of custom lifestyle magazines for Cadillac and Holland America Line, and was the founding editor-in-chief of Modern Luxury Interiors South Florida. He also was the executive editor for B2B magazines for Acura and Honda Financial Services, and he served as travel editor for Conde Nast. Magazines under Limsky’s editorship have garnered more than 75 industry awards.

He has also written for many of the country’s top newspapers and magazines, including The New York Times, Washington Post, Los Angeles Times, Miami Herald, Boston Globe, USA Today, Worth, Robb Report, Afar, Time Out New York, National Geographic Traveler, Men’s Journal, Ritz-Carlton, Elite Traveler, Florida Design, Metropolis and Architectural Digest Mexico. His other clients have included Four Seasons, Acqualina Resort & Residences, Yahoo!, American Airlines, Wynn, Douglas Elliman and Corcoran. As an adjunct assistant professor, Limsky has taught journalism, film and creative writing at the City University of New York, Pace University, American University and other colleges.
