EARTH DAY BEACH CLEAN UP THIS SATURDAY!

| The way I see it, every day spent on this planet is huge blessing, a gift, and an opportunity to experience great things. The older I get the more awake I become and the more I learn that knowledge is power and in fact demands action. While I have always been passionate about environmental sustainability and have chosen an almost completely vegan diet in hopes of contributing to a healthier planet after seeing the Plastic Ocean screener at Soho Malibu and learning so much from the film I realized that the world of plastic is world we know NOTHING about, but are being affected by daily. Immediately I heard myself asking; how can I help? What’s my role here, why was this information brought to me and how can I share it with like-minded humans?

The SoulCycle community, duh! If 17 thousand people come to SoulCycle a day, that’s potentially 17,000 sweat bags and 17,000 water bottles a day that we use out of convenience and lack of information. That’s 34,000 plastic items a day.. potentially 12,410,000 items of plastic a year! That means WE have a huge opportunity to make a difference! 🙂 So without any judgement I challenged my classes‘ riders to be a bit more mindful and bring or purchase a reusable bottle and sweat bags. Right now I would say about 75% of the class has transitioned to reusable and I hope that to be 100% by the week of Earth Day.

Now let me be clear, I’m here to teach not preach. This isn’t about judging or pushing anyone to feel guilty about using plastic, as it’s EVERYWHERE you go and 99 percent of anything purchased or produced is at some point wrapped, shipped, or stored in plastic. This is about building awareness around the little changes we can make as individuals that will lead to spreading knowledge and awareness and eventually make a huge difference. Imagine our grandkids looking at us and asking what we did to help the environment that they have to now live in and raise their children in; like how could we have done nothing with the knowledge that we had? It’s a lot to think about and  a huge responsibility but we are a generation of enlightenment and awareness and I think together we can make an impact!

SO, I’m excited to invite you to my first beach clean-up! We will be meeting at SoulCycle Santa Monica (120 Wilshire Boulevard, Santa Monica, CA 90401) on Earth Day (April 22, 2017) at 1:30pm PT . We will glove up, bag up and hit the beaches! There will be light food and beverages and PRESSSSSSENTS!!!!! (while supplies last)  🙂  Also, there and afterward sweetgreen is offering another free salad courtesy of them which you can redeem at http://bit.ly/sgpixie!

The more the merrier, so friends + family are welcome to join also!

Special thanks to SoulCycle, sweetgreen and Lululemon for supporting this project.
