It pertains to my business
It pertains to my business

I’m an avid reader of Shop-Eat-Surf because it’s really the only online newsletter that I have found that is not only industry related, but also because it’s not so “guy-centric.” I find that a lot of the information I read on the site pertains to my business (as a swimwear designer) and keeps me up to date on what other companies and other women in the industry in general are doing which is not only inspiring but also helps me gauge the future direction of my business as well.

I feel privileged to read the Executive Edition because I know I am getting insider industry information before it hits the mainstream media channels. And it’s always good to know what my friends are up to in the industry.

Press Release:

 

San Clemente, CA (June 25, 2011) – Surfrider Foundation activists Saturday joined tens of thousands of people across the country and around the world in protesting the expansion of offshore drilling. As part of the international Hands Across the Sand movement, citizens joined hands at hundreds of local events to express opposition to offshore drilling and support for clean energy.

 

Protesting offshore drilling.Surfrider Foundation chapters participated in over 25 events held at beaches and parks throughout the United States. The Surfrider Foundation has supported the Hands Across The Sand effort since its founding in 2009 by Florida surfer and restaurant owner Dave Rauschkolb.

 

“Our elected leaders need to understand that new offshore drilling is not the answer to our energy needs,” said Pete Stauffer, Surfrider Foundation’s Ocean Ecosystem Manager.

 

“The massive turnout for the Hands Across the Sands today shows that people oppose the risky practice of offshore drilling and understand that we need to seek real solutions to our energy crisis including increased efficiency, conservation and renewable alternatives.”
