Refill App to Help You Ditch Bottled Water

Plastic pollution is devastating our oceans. Every year, 30 billion single-use plastic water bottles are sold. They end up in our waterways. Companies make us believe we need their water, but the truth is that bottled is less regulated than tap, and can be 1,000 times more expensive.

Sustainable Living Video Series with Rob Greenfield

After 3 years in the making, I’m so excited to finally bring to you my Sustainable Living Series. The series documents my off the grid bike ride across the USA on a bamboo bicycle where I practiced sustainable living to the extreme. In 4,700 miles of cycling, I used just 160 gallons of water, burned less than one gallon of gas, never turned on a light switch and created only 2 pounds of trash. That is 80x less water, 200x less trash, 600x less fossil fuels, and 1,000 times less electricity than the average American! Plus I ate nearly 300 pounds of food from grocery store dumpsters to prove just how much perfectly good food we’re wasting in the USA.

The things I did were extreme but in this series you’ll learn how your daily actions affect the world around you both near and far. The episodes are food, waste, water, transportation, and energy and each episode informs you in an inspirational and fun way. By the end of the series, you will know the basics behind sustainable living and what you can do to live more sustainably without going nearly to the extremes that I did on my journey. Each episode ends with what you can do to be the change you wish to see.

Is this safe?

Is this stinky?

Southern California’s Most Water-Conscious Resident?

This might sound bold but I’m going to put myself out there.

Am I Southern California’s most water-conscious resident?

I use less than 5 gallons of water per day, harvest rainwater, poop in a compost toilet, shower in the ocean, and use most of my water at least twice!

I’m definitely doing my part to beat the drought but I’ll let this video do the rest of the talking for me:
