Rob GreenfieldSan Diego, California, United States
Rob Greenfield is an adventurer, activist, dude making a difference and ambassador to 1% for the Planet. His purpose is to inspire health, happiness, and freedom on Earth and he’s dedicated his life to this mission. He has cycled across the United States, twice, on a bamboo bicycle, went a year without showering, and has dove into over a thousand dumpsters across America, all to inspire positive social and environmental change. When not out adventuring he lives off the grid in a fifty-square-foot tiny home in San Diego. His extreme adventures and activism campaigns may appear unattainable to many but within them are an abundance of simple lessons and tips that can be adapted into any life to live with more happiness, health, and freedom.
He has vowed to donate not just 1%, but 90% of his media income to nonprofits!
Rob couldn't be more proud to represent 1% for the Planet and loves to help grow the movement. You can count on him to lead by example and to work hard to leave behind a planet that we can all be proud to call home.
What does it mean to Rob to be a 1% for the Planet Ambassador?
"It means doing what I know is right even when it is not the most convenient.
It means being part of a community of people who really care about the earth and who's actions speak louder than their words.
It means supporting businesses that are doing their part to ensure our earth is going to be beautiful beyond our lifetime.
It means using business as a means to create a cleaner healthier earth for all of us to live on.
It means putting the earth and my community before myself.
It means taking the time to learn about and understand things that I know are important.
It means taking care of myself and living a happy healthy modest life that others can strive for.
It means being conscious of my actions and making changes to them when they are needed.
It means loving the earth each and every day and showing it through my actions.
It means surrounding myself with people who will inspire me to take the actions I want to."
