Growing up a Tarzan child of the world, making shoes from vines, I never in my wildest dreams thought I'd have a KEEN signature shoe that would help save the world! The "Sage" sandal is perfect for adventure, getting wet, or strolling the town! Not only are the shoes made sustainably, and last forever, but #KEEN established a program called Hybrid Care where they partner with non-profit organizations around the world getting youth into the outdoors, protecting land for environmental and recreational value, and giving bikes and shoes to kids in need. They are truly an inspirational company to work with and they even give their employees daily recess!

WE MUST ACT NOW BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE. Over the past 6 years I've documented the reality of our growing GLOBAL PLASTIC CRISIS. SIMPLE SOLUTIONS:Orca365: Join an Orca365 adventure today & have an incredible life changing adventure surfing while also being part of the solution. http://www.orca365.comMobot Nation: I save about 200 plastic water bottles a year by using a Mobot water bottle which also doubles as an exercise foam roller.http://mobot.com Zoetica: Since more than 40% of plastic is used just once, I carry a Zoetica bag with reusable items like straws, utensils, and cups. http://zoeticalife.comThankful to these supporters of the cause and the making of this film.Cinematography Mark Tipple#plasticfreejuly #alisonsadventures
WE DID IT!!! Today Hawaii officially became the the first state to ban the sale of sunscreens with oxybenzone and octinoxate in them. Studies show that these ingredients are damaging coral reefs, marine life, human bodies, AND killing the marine plants that provide over 60% of the worlds oxygen!Thank you, Governor Ige @govhawaii, for signing SB 2571 into effect!I hope the world can follow Hawaii in banning toxic sunscreens!

EXCITED to finally release my ALISON'S ADVENTURES MEXICO FILMS over this week!The human body can only survive 4 days without water. We live on a planet made up of 71% water but only 2.5% is fresh, and of that 2.5% only 0.065% is available for human consumption – yet every moment that fresh water source is under threat by pollutants introduced by the people who need it most: us.The trash I’m paddling through is directly over the gorgeous fresh water caves, or Cenotes, of the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico. When it rains the toxins from the trash seep through the extremely pores limestone and directly in the one of our last fresh water source on earth. This trash was not a landfill. It was simply placed out of site as it is done it most places all over the world – destroying one of the most beautiful destinations on earth. I was honored to team up with Sam Meacham (featured in this video) who is a National Geographic Grantee, professional cave diver, scientist, and founder of the non profit CINDAQ AC (El Centro Investigador del Sistema Acuífero de Quintana Roo AC). Sam has spent decades dedicated to learning and sharing how we as a planet can protect our waters before it’s too late. You can support his incredible efforts at El Centro Investigador del Sistema Acuífero de Quintana Roo A.C.THE SOLUTION: As a planet we can prevent this by:1. Reducing fossil fuel emissions2. Reducing plastic production4. turn to green energy to run factories and cars. 5. shifting to solar power for electricity 6. Grow organic food and practice regernative agriculture and compostingAs individuals:1. Refuse single use plastic like water bottles2. Ride a bike to work or take public transport 3. Turn off lights in a room when you are not in the room OR switch to a solar power grid.4. Compost your food scraps instead of throwing them in the garbage. 5. Travel to eco minded resorts and use Raw Elements sunscreen that does not kill the reef6. Get involved in community organizations and non profits that are working to change environmental laws.
