Ocean Hero Award 2019 by OCEANA

I am so honored to receive the Ocean Hero Award from OCEANA during the amazing Sea Change Summer Party on Saturday, September 7, 2019. The gala was held at a magical estate in Laguna Beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean! OCEANA has done so many wonderful things to help our earth, and it is the largest international advocacy organization dedicated solely to ocean conservation. The Sea Change Summer Party is held once a year to raise funds and to celebrate the ocean, and this year's theme was the Plague of Single-Use Plastic. I was truly humbled to be up on stage to receive the award in front of so many environmental leaders and activists who have done so much for our ocean environment. Thank y

EarthFest 2019 at The Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center

On Saturday, September 14, I was at the family friendly EarthFest event in Irvine, Orange County, organized by The Irvine Ranch Outdoor Education Center (IROEC), to celebrate 10 years of their sustainability efforts. This was my first time having a booth at an event promoting my campaign Skip the Plastic Straw, and it was a fun experience meeting so many people and other eco-friendly vendors. Thank you to Sarah Burgess, Leadership and Youth Development Director of IROEC, and her team for inviting me to this event and for all the help that day! The event started at 9 am and ended at 5 pm, and I had 121 new pledges from people who stopped by to say hi and pledged to stop using plastic straws!
