Healthy oceans matter, in large part because they are an expression of our commitment to one another, the rest of life on our planet, and our future.
The Earth isn’t something given to you from your parents but lent to you by your children.
Blue is the new green. But unfortunately our seas are in serious trouble due to a host of problems linked to our behaviors. This “blue frontier” is our final wilderness and sacred trust. We can all be part of a growing tide of ocean activism, an upwelling of seaweed (marine grassroots) rebels: surfers, scientists, fishermen, divers, businesses people, and others who’ve come to appreciate that it’s not too late to reclaim our blue frontier’s heritage and last great commons, not too late to be good stewards of our blue marble planet.

A false conflict has been set up between can you be a sustainable business and can you be a strong business.
