Event description

Description

Rob Greenfield is an adventurer, environmental activist, humanitarian, and dude making a difference. He is dedicated to leading the way to a more sustainable and just world!

One of Rob's many endeavours is the creation of The Food Waste Fiasco, a campaign that strives to end food waste and hunger in the U.S. He has drove into more than two thousand dumpsters across America to demonstrate how nearly half of all food in the U.S. is wasted while 50 million (1 in 7) Americans are food insecure.

In 2009 Rob Greenfield was a loud, drunk, environmental nuisance focused on partying, women, money, and nice possessions. But then reality hit in 2011 and he woke up to the fact that all of his daily actions were causing environmental and social destruction around the world. Since then he’s worked diligently to transform his life to be of benefit and service to the earth, humanity, and all creatures. His extreme activism and adventures have reached millions around the globe through his TV show on Discovery Channel, his book, Dude Making a Difference, and international media including The New York Times, BBC, NPR, and Al Jazeera. He believes that all of us can leave the world a better place through simple positive changes in our daily lives. In today's environment it's easy to feel helpless and hopeless but Rob believes there's never been a better time to be the change for a more sustainable and just world and he's here to inspire you to join the movement.

The proceeds of the event will go towards http://fleetfarming.org
