We also get a peek at what’s to come this year as Major League Baseball season kicks off April 4th. It’s safe to say, baseball is in “full swing”. Check out Regan’s colorful cast of characters.

To me it is all about our youth. It is funny because I surf and use the ocean every week. I surfed today and this year I noticed how clean the water has been and how much active marine life there is.
The whales are moving in abundance and the sea lions and dolphins are everywhere. I surf with teenagers and talk with them about it. I also work and contribute to many organizations and a Sustainability web site.
The surf industry has designed Board Shorts and Clothing directly from Recycled Plastic Water Bottles, they are cool and comfortable. In the big circle of life “Lion King” :), we need to educate and start now with the youth of today and start this habit.
This is what it means to me:
To be responsible stewards of the earth and respect the needs of future generations, we have to use the resources we have been given in a way that respects that balance. Starts with us and to educate our youth to carry on this new tradition.
The need for environmental sustain ability is seen most clearly in agriculture. We all have to be fed, clothed, and sheltered every day and as such our choices with regards to those needs shape how industry behaves. As we choose cleaner more sustainable produced goods the demand goes up for those goods and manufacturers must move in that direction as the demand dictates. By educating ourselves, our youth and making conscious choices about what we consume, we can join the worldwide movement towards a safer, cleaner, and healthier world.
Choose to “Do The Right Things, The Right Way, For The Right Reasons”. That starts with respecting the balance of our shared Ecosystem, Planet Earth and valuing the combined efforts of everyone working towards that end.
We can do something about the quality of our water; land and air by choosing to buy with sustain ability in mind.
Gordon Parks: How the Photographer Captured Black and White America, won the NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Children’s Literary Work! The story, authored by Carole Boston Weatherford, is truly inspiring. Published by Albert Whitman & Company, the book tells the story of Gordon Parks, considered a pioneer as one of the first African-American filmmakers of his time. He was a prominent figure in photojournalism, documenting the civil rights movement and poverty in America.
Our very own Jamey Christoph helped bring the pages to life with his amazing illustrations. Meticulously researched, Jamey brings a warmth and depth to all of the images throughout the book. Incredibly captivating, they help tell the story and bring Carole’s words to life.
What a truly wonderful achievement for Jamey. We’re so happy for the recognition Jamey and Carole have received and the positive impact the story has had on children everywhere.
