Every Wednesday on the Hippie Haven podcast, learn how to live harmoniously with yourself, others & the planet. We talk about all things hippie, including eating vegan, reducing your trash, starting an ethical business, eco-activism, gardening, beekeeping, tiny house living, and so much more.

Today's guest is Richard Arterbury, the executive director of Ocean Blue Project, a nonprofit organization based in my home state of Oregon. Their mission is to protect and conserve the ocean and its associated waterways through hands on volunteer efforts to clean beaches and rivers, enhance wildlife habitats, and reduce pollution and through service learning projects to provide education and increase awareness of the critical importance of clean waterways. Today we'll be discussing how he started his nonprofit organization, what he's learned along the way and how you can organize a trash cleanup in your community.

The Hippie Haven Podcast is hosted by Callee - a zero waste activist & business owner. Formerly a translator for the US Navy, Callee was honorably discharged as a conscientious objector in 2017 following an episode of severe depression & alcoholism fueled by not living in alignment with her core values. That same year, at age 23, she started Bestowed Essentials, a handmade line of eco-friendly beauty & home products that are now stocked in over 100 stores around the US & Canada. Callee began hosting this free podcast in August 2018, as well as speaking at events and teaching educational workshops across the country, as part of her life mission to arm you with the knowledge & tools you need to spark positive change in your community. In December 2019, she opened The Hippie Haven in Rapid City, South Dakota - a zero waste retail store & community space with a little free library - the first of its kind in the state. She’ll be opening a second Hippie Haven in Salem, Oregon in Feb 2021.
