Plastic in The Ocean, Businesses Are The Key

Anyone who knows me knows I'm passionate about a lot of things but nothing is more important to me than helping people learn about the plastic in the oceans and the fact that we need to do something about it. Also, I believe the Entrepreneurs and small business owners are the key to economic recovery as well as the key to solving this problem.

We like to believe the world is a great big place and it just works in spite of anything we might do but that's not the case. In reality, the Oceans are the key to everything that makes it possible for us to survive here. It provides us with oxygen, it cleans carbon out of the air and other parts of the ecosystem. It provides us with food and other resources. In many ways and for many people, the ocean is the key to the bottom level of Maslow's Hierarchy of needs.

Eco-Friendly RockStar

So when I got a chance to stand up in front of about 400 people at the Craig Duswalt RockStar Marketing bootcamp for a few minutes and share with them what I know and what I'm doing about it, I was thrilled.

First off, Criag is doing something really impressive. He's teaching small business owners how to market themselves in a competitive market. Not satisfied with just this, Craig has changed focus from Marketing to the entire Entrepreneur experience. Beginning March 14, 2013, Craig will be helping people learn how to start, build and maintain a successful small business and I believe that's important because Entrepreneurs are the types of problem solvers who can really make a difference in the really important environmental issues.

Speaking About The Plastic in The Ocean 

I had about 5 minutes to get across everything I had to say and someone recorded it. So I thought I'd share that recording here...


Education and Green Business Certification is focused on teaching and supporting Entrepreneurs and businesses in being more sustainable and of course, marketing themselves as being sustainable.
