Being a Good Citizen to Planet Earth

Building a brighter future for planet earth must coincide with sustainability. Blue Water Companies and Jett McCandless are committed to achieving a net zero carbon footprint by 2021. It is Jett’s deeply held belief that as we work towards improving human life through our business goals, it is also our responsibility to ensure our planet is taken care of. We only have one home and we are determined to use our platform to keep it clean, beautiful, and sustainable.

In 2020, Blue Water Companies had an aggregated carbon footprint of 901,487 tons CO2e. In order to completely offset the carbon footprint of each and every Blue Water Companies team member and shareholder, we have committed to planting 5,000 trees through the #TeamTrees project.
