Women Water Warriors Join Orange County Coastkeeper

September 30th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Women Water Warriors Join Orange County Coastkeeper”

Orange County Coastkeeper seeks to infuse its staff with people from diverse professional backgrounds and finds it beneficial when staff members are role models for future generations. Coastkeeper’s newest hires will help further the organization’s mission of protecting the region’s water resources to keep them swimmable, fishable and drinkable. 

Michaela Coats, Suzanne Welsh and Armita Ariano bring an abundance of experience and love for the environment, which will be essential in their work. We welcome you to meet each of these amazing women joining the team.

Michaela Coats, Coastkeeper’s education coordinator, was born and raised in Orange County. She received her Bachelor of Science in environmental studies from University of California, Santa Barbara in 2018, and her Master of Science from the University of California, Irvine in 2021. Prior to working at Coastkeeper, she worked at several nonprofits providing education programs to local youth. She loves the water and she loves kids, so leading Coastkeeper’s education programs is the perfect fit for her.

“I believe that educating people, especially youth, about the region’s water is an essential first step in ensuring the protection and conservation of this precious resource,” said Michaela. “As education coordinator for Coastkeeper, I’ll be able to share my passion for marine environments with local students, helping shape the next generation of water warriors.”

Suzanne Welsh, Coastkeeper’s volunteer coordinator from Newport Beach, was furloughed during the California’s COVID-19 pandemic shutdown. In that time, she worked for California State Parks as a volunteer coordination assistant before returning full time to Orange County Coastkeeper in July 2021.  She is in charge of coordinating public and private beach cleanups, as well as coordinating Coastal Cleanup Day for Orange County. 

“I’m passionate about community involvement in our public lands,” said Suzanne. “Getting folks outdoors and active in caring for their communities, whether through a monitoring program or through a beach cleanup, is truly important in terms of public engagement in land management and in preserving the health of our local ecosystems.”

Armita Ariano, Coastkeeper’s newest staff attorney working on environmental litigation, spent three years practicing entertainment law honing her transactional and negotiation skills at United Talent Agency and Pilgrim Media Group. Armita is active in her local community and serves as a member of the Sierra Club in Los Angeles County, where she advocates for the just transition from fossil fuels to clean and sustainable energy practices. 

“When we hold our governments and businesses accountable for their impact on our region’s water quality, we are better able to sustain our local ecosystems and protect our communities,” said Armita.

Our new additions to the Orange County Coastkeeper staff bring a blend of experience and willingness to learn new things. They are passionate about advocacy and teaching others to care for the region’s waterways. 

“I’m looking forward to working more closely with these three talented women as they integrate, or re-integrate, into the Coastkeeper team,” said Garry Brown, founder and president of Orange County Coastkeeper. “They each bring diverse experiences and backgrounds to the team which will help us continue to protect the state of your water in the region.”

With ample enthusiasm, strong experience, and a commitment to clean water, it is a team YOU can be proud of. We’re all in on the same fight to keep the region’s water fishable, drinkable and swimmable!

Start a Meaningful Business as an Ecopreneur

September 27th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Start a Meaningful Business as an Ecopreneur”

By Carolyn Hart

Ecopreneurs are on the rise. Many new, environmentally conscious entrepreneurs are entering the business landscape, while a slew of well-established companies are turning their focus to the environment and greening their operations.

This is good news, but there’s much more to be done. If you have a passion for planet earth and want to use your business skills for meaningful causes, then becoming an ecopreneur might be just the right thing. And Coastkeeper has listed some tips and resources to help you get started on your journey:

Ecopreneur vs. Entrepreneur

As the term suggests, being an ecopreneur is similar to being an entrepreneur in many aspects. But a strong passion for the environment and a few other characteristics set ecopreneurs apart:

Ecopreneurs channel their love for the earth through determination to use global issues as opportunities to heal and restore. 
They prioritize collaboration and cooperation over competition, which is why innovative partnerships are so common among ecopreneurs. 
They look at every aspect of their operations to determine how they can better meet the needs of the environment and the community
And they never stop striving for innovative ways to solve problems, ultimately filling their work with meaning and purpose. 

First Steps

As with any type of business, you’ll need to lay a solid foundation before getting your venture off the ground. 

Consider your interests and skills, and research green business ideas. 
Settle on a viable business idea, come up with a business name, and make a business plan. 
Create a business budget and seek funding (e.g., grants, loans, investments, etc.).
Choose a business structure, and hire a formation service to set it up in California

Getting Ready to Launch

Once you’ve taken care of some of the groundwork, you’ll be in a good spot to put together your brand and market your business!

Develop your branding (e.g., logo, colors, fonts, etc.), and create a professional website.
Start promoting your brand through social media, email, and local sources.
Consider getting business insurance to protect your financial and intellectual investments. 
Obtain a green business certification from a reputable institution. 

There can be so much more to business than making money. While your green business must be profitable to withstand the challenges ahead, focusing on the environment at every turn will allow you to keep meaning and purpose at the center of your operations. If you feel the nudge to become an ecopreneur, now could be the time to make the leap!

Celebrating World Rivers Day

September 25th, 2021 Posted by Uncategorized 0 comments on “Celebrating World Rivers Day”

“Rivers are the arteries of our planet; they are lifelines in the truest sense.”

– Mark Angelo

 

On the fourth Sunday of September, which this year falls on September 26, millions of people in over 100 countries celebrate World Rivers Day. It is a celebration of the world’s waterways, highlighting the many values of rivers and striving to increase public awareness and encourage improved stewardship of them globally.

In 2005 the United Nations launched the Water for Life Decade to help create a greater awareness of the need to better care for our water resources. Following this, World Rivers Day was created by internationally renowned river advocate Mark Angelo. In 1980 he founded British Columbia Rivers Day and later on expanded it to World Rivers Day (WRD).

Angelo was motivated by rivers in virtually every country facing an array of threats, and decided that only through active involvement could he ensure their health in the years ahead.

River enthusiasts from around the world came together to organize the inaugural World Rivers Day event. That first event in 2005 was a great success, and was celebrated across dozens of countries. Since then, the event has continued to grow.

Orange County residents can join the celebration by supporting the Santa Ana River (SAR) Mouth report – a review of activities and threats to the Santa Ana River Mouth, which is governed by multiple municipalities. They can also team up with Orange County Coastkeeper for events ranging from stream cleanups and fish enhancement projects, to educational outings and community riverside celebrations.

Rivers are a precious resource in our region and all over the world. The state of your rivers depends on all of us.
