The health of our oceans is a tipping point, and we must protect them from further exploitation and pollution. What can you do? Plastic pollution from sandwich …


For days, I’ve been in despair – angry and sad to witness again the persistent and deadly racism against the black community. As a white man, I will never face the threats that black men, women, and children endure every single day. But I can refuse to turn away.

The electric vehicle charging company Volta typically receives the same question when they say they provide “free fuel” at their more than 140 charging stations around the Bay Area, “What’s the catch?” They will happily reply, “There is none!” Volta pays for the power you put in your EV with digital ad screens on their chargers at convenient locations like Trader Joes and Whole Foods. Volta generously donated ad space to Save The Bay in March, so we sat down with Jen Capasso and Nina Rush from Volta to learn more about how they are helping people ditch fossil fuels …
