Ocean Rower and Environmentalist, Roz Savage launches the second stage – one of three stages- of her solo row across the Pacific Ocean.

At 41 years old, the U.K. native is a living testament and an inspiration to solo adventurists, female travelers, athletes and basically, anyone whose dreamt of accomplishing a nearly impossible or unheard of feat.

Roz’s journey is a campaign effort to raise environmental awareness and conscious living. She is issuing a challenge to people to Pull Together by “matching her 10,000 oar strokes a day with 10,000 steps a day“.

“…I aim to inspire people to choose simiple solutions that cost nothing and are easy to work into the busy routines of their daily lives. You might feel like one little choice doesn’t make a big difference, that its just a drop in the ocean.

But those little choices and actions add up quickly- and they do make a world of difference.”
