TOPICS: THE TOOLS FOR NOMADS SHOW
- RACHAEL ZOE MILLER
By their very nature, the experience of an epiphany is that they hit us when least expected. For expedition scientist Rachael Zoe Miller her epiphany happened on vacation, on a tiny, remote beach in Maine. The beach near their rented cabin was covered, literally, knee deep in garbage and plastic. She spent the entire day of their three day vacation clearing the garbage off the beach. And there you have the unexpected experience of an epiphany, Rachael Zoe Miller style.
Rachael’s sole focus is on saving the world’s oceans from plastic and microplastics, and connecting the people to it. Her non-profit, co-founded with her husband James, Rozalia Project, has three goals: a clean ocean, a protected ocean and a thriving ocean. The Rozalia Project’s 60-foot research vessel American Promise gives the team the ability to operate far from shore for extended periods of time.
Rachael is also the inventor of the Cora Ball, a new kind of laundry ball. Inspired by the way coral filters the ocean, the Cora Ball prevents microfiber from breaking off our clothes before they go down the drains of our washing machines and into our waterways. In this interview you’ll learn just how much the clothes we’re wearing right now (if we are wearing anything!) contribute to microplastic pollution in the oceans.
The Rozalia Project is a 1% for the Planet company.
