Lisa Fasnacht loves to see people go outside and be active—so much so that her company's web address is its own call to action, GetOutsideandDoSomething.com. Then there's her company's Facebook page, where she's just as apt to plug excursions with the local Meetup group outside-adventure club as she is her own equipment rentals, which include use of outdoor gear such as bicycles, Trikkes, standup paddleboards, and camping equipment. She also leads guided kayak tours along the Treasure Coast's waterways, giving guests occasional glimpses of wildlife such as eagles suffering from male-pattern baldness.

As its name suggests, Giveback2kids has one concern that takes precedence above all else: children. Serving the Treasure Coast, the newly hatched outreach program collaborates with small businesses and families around the neighborhood in an effort to snuff out local violence. That effort starts with the city's children, for whom Giveback2kids provides opportunities in education, community awareness, and even entertainment—all of which contributes to the organization's ultimate goal of helping youngsters develop not only academically, but socially and physically, as well.
Treasure Coast Seltzer Works strives to keep the company as eco-friendly as the water it sells. The purveyor of siphon-bottled seltzer water and oxygen-infused water seals its products in reusable BPA-free containers developed by the company to reduce its environmental impact. Along with its other ecologically responsible practices, the bottling company maintains its 100% green certification while still delivering crisp and fizzy beverages to homes and commercial customers.

From modest beginnings in 1968, the family-owned-and-operated St. Lucie Battery & Tire has since expanded into a multilocation automotive empire where drivers can replace tires, revive batteries, and receive top-notch mechanical attention from ASE-certified technicians. A 45-minute lube, oil, and filter change drains the used sludge from assiduous engines and replenishes them with up to 5 quarts of fresh, premium-grade lubricant freshly milked by the oil-streaked hands of a gear maid. Meanwhile, they'll relieve a past-prime oil filter of its duty, making room for a resolute rookie who will more forcefully bar entry to rowdy or underage contaminants. To conclude engine pamperings, fluids are brought to the proper levels, tires are rotated, and 21-point safety inspection ensures that there are no obvious or dangerous flaws.
