|What’s your favourite outdoor activity?
||Hiking or walking alongside the ocean.
|How long have you volunteered with Surfrider?
|Why did you become involved?
||Stacy White suggested I get involved, so I gave a short talk at a chapter meeting about my choice and challenges taking on a lifestyle that avoids plastic. After meeting everyone and finding out more, I wanted to support Surfrider more actively.
|What was the last SFVI event you attended or volunteered at?
||Either the film screening of The Clean Bin Project and panel discussion—or when we went to city hall for the Ban the Bag campaign.
|What is your favourite SFVI event/activity?
||Definitely the OPEN CINEMA-style film screenings with post-film panel discussions.
|What is the #1 thing you are doing to save our oceans?
||Refusing and not buying plastic, single use disposables and choosing to refill, reuse, repair and buy less.
|What is your #1 tip to reduce single-use plastic use?
||If you forget your small cloth or mesh bags for bulk or produce shopping, walk over to the bakery or mushroom section and grab a brown paper bag for your grains and goodies.
