|What’s your favourite outdoor activity?
||My favourite outdoor activity is walking on the beach with my dog Benjamin Stanley. He goes almost everywhere with me.
|How long have you volunteered with Surfrider?
|Why did you become involved?
||I became involved with Surfrider because as I become more aware of what plastic (in particular) is doing to the planet and other species on the planet, I needed to do whatever I could to help.
|What was the last SFVI event you attended or volunteered at?
||The last clean up I attended was in Jordan River.
|What is your favourite SFVI event/activity?
||Hahaha! This is easy! Finding the biggest, and hardest to retrieve thing off of the beach and lugging it out! Close second would be finding a stash of small plastics trapped in a high tide line and spending my time focused on that one spot.
|What is the #1 thing you are doing to save our oceans?
||Moving to within walking distance of my job would be #1. My life and health improved so much since doing this, plus the time that I save not driving has given me a chance to do more things (like volunteer with Surfrider).
|What is your #1 tip to reduce single-use plastic use?
||Be prepared!! I have some of these amazing bags from Not Just Pretty by BAGGU. I throw one or two over my shoulder when I head out. They don’t take up much space but they really come in handy if I happen to purchase something when I am out. I leave bags in my car (which I barely use) and I have one hanging on the door to my condo as a reminder to take a reusable bag!
|Name a local business you support because of their environmental practices?
||I support local businesses as much as possible because they are local.
