PSA // Mother Earth

Jacques Cousteau was not just the inspiration behind The Life Aquatic or even Wes Anderson's use of our beloved Futura (see film below.)  He was a great caretaker and spokesman (and explorer, ecologist, filmmaker, innovator, scientist, photographer, author and researcher*) of the sea and of preserving our earth for future generations... though he thought our chances for survival beyond the next 100 years or so was bleak given the sh*tty job we've done so far.   


His films are truly inspiring and beautiful:


Though he passed away in 1997, his legacy lives on through the Cousteau Society, of which you can become a member today for the low low price of $30 but if you donate $100+, you'll get your very own red cap!  Or you can just sign his petition to save the whales.

I love Cousteau! His foundation is based in my hometown, in Virginia and I use to volunteer there as a young girl. I had no idea at the time the impact he was making on the world! Such an inspiration. I had the honor of going to high school with his grandson, who is following in his footsteps. xo Samantha
