Locker Board and Ocean Unite
Carson started his company, Locker Board, and developed his first product, Streetubez, because of his love for the ocean. He started Locker Board to help pay for his surf lessons and surf contests. He developed Streetubez because he wanted to surf anywhere, anytime. That's why we donate a portion of proceeds from Locker Board to Ocean Unite.
The Ocean is everyone's business. In fact, it is probably the biggest business in the world, with an estimated economic output of US$2.5 trillion per year (that's 5% of global GDP).
It also gives us life. It provides half the oxygen we breathe, it has absorbed a quarter of our CO2 emissions, it provides jobs and livelihoods and puts food on our plates.
But it is in danger. You may not be able to see it from above the surface, but the threats are many and the risks are real: plastics are choking our sea life; pollution is causing ‘dead zones’; our corals are dying; climate change is heating our Ocean, making it more acidic; and too many boats are chasing fewer and fewer fish.
Ocean Unite is a non-profit that is uniting and activating powerful voices for ocean conservation. That's why Locker Board donates a portion of its proceeds to Ocean Unite.
Carson Kropfl and the #SaveSanO Movement
Carson donates his time to help his home town of San Clemente with the #SaveSanO Movement. The #SaveSanO movement was created by Carson and his friends and is endorsed by PublicWatchDogs.org, SanClementeGreen.org, SanOnofreSafety.org and SamuelLawrenceFoundation.org to help get 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) stored in safer canisters and moved to a safe facility.
SONGS is one of the largest nuclear waste dumps in America. Over 25% of America's nuclear waste sits right at one of Carson's favorite surf breaks, SanO.
Currently, spent nuclear fuel waste is stored unsafely in the U.S. in containers that can crack, leak and explode in the short-term. Nuclear power plants around the world continue to generate tons of lethal nuclear waste, without solving the major waste storage problems. This is one of the most critical environmental issues facing mankind.
Join the #SaveSanO Movement and help get 3.6 million pounds of nuclear waste at the San Onofre Nuclear Generating Station (SONGS) stored in safer canisters and moved to a safe facility.
