Plant Proof - Plant Based Nutrition & Inspirational Stories
Why Kieran De Visser is running, cycling and kayaking across Australia
In Episode 64 I sit down with Kieran De Visser, founder of the not for profit organisation Endurothon Oz that has the aim of stopping plastic pollution at its source. Kieran will be cycling, kayaking and running 25,000 Km across Australia to raise awareness for this campaign and raise 1 million dollars to clean our oceans.
What I find really interesting about Kieran's story is not just his desire to help the planet but the fact much of his inspiration came from a time of his life where he could have easily put his own best interests first.
IN THIS EPISODE WE DISCUSS:
• Kierans back story and his passion for making positive change
• How Kieran became inspired to raise awareness about plastic pollution
• Why this is such a big problem and something we need to act on now
• The Endurothon Oz event - what the 25,000 km across Australia looks like and how he is preparing
• What education Kieran will be providing along the way (more info here)
• Why Kieran transitioned to a vegetarian and then plant based diet
• The ultimate goal for Endurothon Oz
• and a whole lot more
I love celebrating stories of young people doing inspirational things to help better our home - and thats what this episode is all about.
