Living Land & Waters

I was watching Ben Harper on "Green Deets" when I heard him bring up a man by the name of Chad Pregracke. Harper said this guy was one of his heroes. I wanted to find out more about this guy and what I found was really inspiring.

Chad Pregracke is the President and founder of Living Lands and Waters. 10 years ago he starting cleaning up the Mississippi and has continued every since. Here is LL&W website, there you will find a video from CBS about Chad and his endeavors.


Also check out this short 4 minute clip from where he gives a funny inspirational talk about how he first got started. This is well worth the watch, I think he could be in stand-up.

I work for Chad and Living Lands & Waters...have for nearly 6 years now. Even if you are not "green" his story can mean something to you...whatever your passion is, one person really can make a difference! The guy is a nut, he's the best boss in the world!

FYI...we have spent quite a bit of time working in the DC area and preliminary plans are to return next year. Send me an email if you are intersted in being put on our mailing list! You'd have a ball!
