Diving into the book "Bored and Brilliant", finally taking the steps to reclaim my life from my phone. That's right, I am making a public admission, I have a problem, and will be taking the steps to reduce my addiction to distraction and "busy-ness" and reconnect with my creative self. It's already hard, but I'm looking forward to going deeper with my time. If I engage less social-medialy, it's because I'm practicing boredom...join me? (Link in my profile.)
"Our ailing ocean is the biggest victim of humanity’s hubris; together we own this crisis, and so together we must come to face the music. And this is not the kind of music you want to put on repeat, this is not a tune for heavy rotation, it is a song consisting of the foul notes of acidification, coral bleaching, arctic-ice-cover melt, dwindling fish stocks...plastic. It’s time we transpose this song of destruction into one of industrial innovation, unprecedented government cooperation, alongside business and humanity evolving to avoid an existential catastrophe." - me. #stopsucking #ourocean2017 #industrialevolution
Congrats to fellow ocean swimmers @paulblackthorne and @orpheomccord for swimming the length of the Golden Gate Bridge today to bring awareness to our friends @oceanconservancy for #sharkfestswim. I'm in for the next one boys. Buy a specialized tshirt: represent.com/paulblackthorne proceeds go to ocean efforts.
Come to me! Manifestation is not only intentional thought, it's also commitment to hard work; so thanks to that of the @lonelywhale foundation, 150+ restaurants, hotels, stadiums, airport et al - we can now celebrate a successful #strawlessinSeattle campaign. This pilot campaign shows the positive impact when people, business and government work in alignment with our values. More to come as we begin to add #strawlesscities the more we as a culture #stopsucking the more we can enjoy #cleanseas. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
When @PaulNicklen accepted my challenge and called out @Starbucks to #stopsuckingI realized that to make REAL sizable change for #CleanSeas we need corporate leadership demonstrated in every community around the world. @Starbucks can be that local leader, from Seattle to New Delhi. So #HowardSchultz, I am doubling down on @PaulNicklen’s challenge and I am challenging YOU to #StopSucking and become that global leader our ocean needs. I also invite you and your entire Seattle based team to join @LonelyWhale and me next Tuesday to celebrate the end of our successful #StrawlessInSeattle campaign. To all the #Stopsucklings, Tag @Starbucks and #HowardSchultz #notsogreenstraws in the comments and or re-post this - help me make sure he doesn’t miss the invite!
This could be a straw with two punching gloves on either end, beating the sht out of our dear ocean.
It could be a strand of plastic bag, a balloon string or really any type, shape, or brand of plastic. But however you cut it up, this is the state of our oceans.
A #strawlessocean ocean is the opening move, a step, a gateway opportunity for consumers to begin to address their plastic consumption all around. This could be a straw, but it's not. A #strawlessocean is an ocean free of all plastic. Photo: @justinhofman
