Roz Savage, Ocean Rower

Roz Savage, GUT PatronRoz Savage, having rowed the world’s oceans and set several records, has seen the impact of plastic bags at first hand.

She promotes plastic-free communities as our co-patron and as a Notable Coalition Member of the Plastic Pollution Coalition. She also supports the work of the 5 Gyres Institute, is an Ambassador for Plastic Oceans and a Myoo Myooze.

Roz Savage had an environmental epiphany after reading about the Native American belief that we have to take good care of the land if we want it to take good care of us. She turned her back on a materialistic lifestyle and embraced a simpler life uncluttered by possessions.

Her key message is that, like her ocean rowing voyages, we can accomplish great things by taking a huge number of tiny steps in the right direction.

Our present environmental challenges have largely been created by billions of humans making daily decisions that don’t best serve the long-term interests of either the Earth or humanity. By taking personal responsibility and making wiser decisions, we can re-set our course for a cleaner, greener, brighter future that combines the best of civilization’s achievements with principles of sustainability.
