This father of 3 told his teenager kids a few years ago that if they really wanted to make a change in the world, and work with something their own children and grandchildren would thank them for, work for a cleaner ocean. Our greatest source of clean air and fresh water. And food of course! None of his kids were very enthusiastic, one of them said: Why don’t YOU do it!
Since then he has studied areas like pollution, plastics, waste management and effective ways to obtain a cleaner ocean. He couldn’t find an organization that primarily focuses on rivers, so he decided to found one.
