Summary: 

John Lanier's friend Brett Howell helped lead an expedition to clean up what is considered, by one metric, to be the most polluted island in the world. It’s called Henderson Island, and the story is well worth reading. John shares it in this week's Ecocentricity blog.

I’m kind of taking this week off – but only because I really want you to spend time reading someone else’s story. I’m inspired to share it this week because my wife and I just got back from a beach trip, and she did her part to clean up the beach where we were, (see photo above, at right) She’s a saint.

If you want to hear about a truly awe-inspiring and jaw-dropping beach cleanup story though, well here you go. My friend Brett Howell helped lead an expedition to clean up what is considered, by one metric, to be the most polluted island in the world. It’s called Henderson Island, and it’s worth every bit of your time to read his story. Enjoy!
