I find most often that I repeat myself over and over again. Cigarettes are nasty, straws suck, plastic bags blow... rethink, reduce, reuse... plastic is forever. Any other ones? I'm ok repeating myself. I'll keep repeating myself just to make sure that I don't miss any opportunities to help create change...

Back in July, I volunteered with Cape Fear Surfrider for Barefoot Wine & Bubbly's Beach Rescue at Wrightsville Beach. I had a really great opportunity to chat with Barefoot about my efforts at WB and they have been so kind to share what I'm doing with the Barefoot community! Check out their blogpost here: Getting 'Butts' Off The Beach
Barefoot Wine & Bubbly will present the film "One Beach"... it'll play all day on Facebook. Yes, I totally think it's worth watching. It's a film about creativity, optimism, and fun at work around the world keeping our beaches barefoot friendly.
What happens when the world comes together?? I like that thought ;)
