Pizza chain donating $6,000 to support environment


DETROIT (AP) — A Detroit-area pizza chain is donating $6,000 to help support environmental efforts in the Great Lakes region.

Last year, Buddy's Pizza launched a line of Great Lakes-themed pizzas and said that $1 from each pie sold from its Made in Michigan Great Lakes Pizza Collection would be donated to the Alliance for the Great Lakes.

Now, Buddy's says it's ready to donate $6,000 to the Chicago-based environmental group.

It'll be used to benefit a restoration and education project targeted at returning 72 linear feet of shoreline and coastal wetland on Detroit's Belle Isle and a litter reduction campaign.

Buddy's also says the five Made in Michigan Great Lakes pizzas will remain on the menu at all nine of the chain's locations in the Detroit area.
