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, then work to save the 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, saving the ocean and more. He couldn’t find an organization that primarily focuses on rivers, so he decided to found one.
