Unique. Handmade. Sustainable. For A Brighter and Kinder Planet.

Blue Mar 4 Change is a Social Enterprise.  What does this mean?  It’s a business that is founded on its’ commitment to maximize human and environmental well-being.  In a nutshell, “For a Brighter and Kinder Planet”.

Soulful Passion Radiating Mindful Action.

Over the years, I have been connecting with people and organizations through my love of travel. Over the past several years I have been volunteering my time with a number of different groups and for various causes. I love to collect unique pieces as I wander close and far away from home. I especially love when a treasure has a story; made even better when it’s green and supports a great cause. Blue Mar 4 Change has been dreamt up through these wonderful experiences.

Social Venture Challenge 2017, Whistler BC

I am grateful to be part of the 2017 Social Venture Challenge in Whistler British Columbia. This is an opportunity to address a pressing issue in the Sea to Sky Corridor.
Through my travels, near and far from home, I’ve seen both beauty and poverty in the world. With every trip I take and adventure out the door, the thing that I see more of, is plastic. We are literally swimming in oceans of plastic. Who does it impact? All of us. Where does it start? With youth.
Blue Mar 4 Change is proposing a collection of environmentally friendly, beautifully designed, functional products, for people on the go. By engaging youth in research, it builds awareness. The thing is, when you know, you care. Take it another step forward, getting youth involved in creating designs that speak to them and to others about looking after our planet. And when these designs are on their backpacks, lunch boxes, snack containers, etc., they remember. A world with less plastic? Yes Please. The meaning of Mar, Sea. Let’s take care of this beautiful place, I like to call, One Blue Dot.

Project Beta, The Sequel to Project Alpha

A Tasty Project for Charity
My Story: A Whole Lot of Yum.
This project, bringing together travellers from around the globe, has the goal of feeding the hungry and eliminating root causes, by raising money and awareness for Action Against Hunger. According to World Food Programme, 1 in 9 people on our planet, do not have enough to eat.
We need your support, to make this book a reality. It Takes A Village…And a Whole Lot of Yum.


Charitable Book Project “The Trip that Changed my Life”

The Trip that Changed my Life is a compilation of over 70 travel stories by travelers and writers from all over the world. This book is the result of Project Alpha, a global undertaking pulling together travelers worldwide to write about the one trip that changed their life. The intent was to show the transformative power of travel and to give back to the communities that continue to transform the lives of travelers the world over.

I have shared my story of the journey to Blue Mar (thus far!) as I strongly believe in partnerships and contributing to the global community. Woven together are travellers’ tales from around the globe.  Why? So that we can help make a difference on this planet.


ROAR

Youth Led, Grassroots Fundraising Project

ROAR Squamish!

This is a group co-founded by two young school friends who want to help protect endangered species. ROAR stands for Respect Our Animal Rights.

Thanks to everyone who supported the first event put on by ROAR! Awareness about endangered species and a total of $226 was raised for WWF Canada at this event, with plans for event number two.

This is what youth led, grassroots caring looks like.
