Picture the ocean. The waves pounding on the shore. A fresh salty breeze invigorates your mind.
Okay now that you’re in the right frame of mind it’s time to read my recent interview with Mike Canavan, owner of The Salty Surfer Company.
Q. Can you tell us a little about how The Salty Surfer Co. was first conceived?
We found that in these times of economic uncertainty and environmental awareness [we] are fueling and awakening to the basic values embodied by Salty who reminds us to live simple/humble and to enjoy life. He’s surfing the world trying to spread a simple global message.
Q. If you had to choose another career for yourself, what would that be?
A self-sustaining lifestyle. I’d love to run my own house on a farm, with a garden, farm animals etc. My home and family would be my occupation.
All of our t-shirts are made from naturally sustaining hemp, bamboo or organic cotton.
The most serious environmental issue we face today is LOVE. Where is the LOVE (seriously)? When this human race finally figures out what it means to love, all environmental issues, greed, corruption etc. etc. will be washed away. If we don’t figure out how to love/respect/trust each other and every living plant and animal on this planet, we will NEVER see change. Live salty or die!
The reefs and points in Rhode Island and New England…..really haven’t had a chance to see any others, but would LOVE to 😉
It’s not difficult, with some inspiration we can get there.
