Emily and Bobbi Hunter
A mother and daughter combination who carry on the legacy of the late, great Greenpeace co-founder Robert Hunter.
As Bob Hunter’s daughter, Emily has carried the torch on eco-activism, making a stand for marine life and the environment. Guided by her activist mother Bobbi, who stood with her husband on Greenpeace’s early whaling missions, Emily is carving out a new activist strategy for a changing world.
 
Ray Anderson
Crowned America’s Greenest CEO.
As head of a carpet manufacturing company, Ray wanted to build the biggest carpet business the world had ever seen. But after reading Paul Hawken’s The Ecology of Commerce, Anderson’s motive shifted to creating a completely sustainable business. His company, Interface Inc., is a leader in sustainable manufacturing.
 
Vandana Shiva
World renowned for her efforts to bring change to agriculture and food production.
