Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about how she made big changes in her lifestyle and a management consulting career to become the first woman ever to row solo across three oceans on behalf of Mother Earth. She uses her own experience to challenge the very idea that money and having stuff brings happiness. Defining success in the context of materialism stands in the way of moving forward with sustainability principles and practices. She recommends simplifying and paring down to the basics to discover and become in tune with your life purpose as the path to happiness.
To order her book, Stop Drifting, Start Rowing: One Woman's Search for Happiness and Meaning Alone on the Pacific, from Amazon click on the image or visit your local bookstore.

Roz Savage, British ocean rower and environmental campaigner, talks about plastics in our oceans, plastic pollution being called a "man-made global catastrophe" in the context of her first-hand experience with the scale of the problem as she rowed, solo, from San Francisco to Hawaii on the first stage of her Pacific Ocean crossing. Meeting up with the two scientists on the Junk craft, they shared dinner and their research with Roz several hundred miles east of Hawaii. Bottom line is we need to use less of it. Each one of us can significantly reduce our use of plastic and make a positive difference in the world. More information about Roz at www.rozsavage.com.

For more than a decade activist performance artist Bill Talen a.k.a. Reverend Billy, along with his Church of Stop Shopping, has preached fiery sermons against recreational consumerism -- and more recently, against climate disaster. In September, Rev. Billy was arrested after staging a 15-minute musical protest at a JPMorgan Chase Bank in Manhattan to highlight the bank's environmental record and the extinction of a Central American golden toad. He now faces a year in prison for misdemeanor charges of riot in the second degree, menacing in the third degree, unlawful assembly and two counts of disorderly conduct. Despite this, he and The Stop Shopping Choir are performing in New York City every Sunday through December 22. Rev. Billy is also featured in the film "What Would Jesus Buy?" and in the book of the same name.
