Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 3 of 4 (INT)

Monty Roberts – Trust-Based Horse Trainer, Part 3 of 4 (INT)

The other thing I would like to say about gaining trust is that no matter what you do, or learn to do with your anatomy, when you strike, when you cause pain, in any way to that animal, you’re breaking that trust. They were racing horses with whips. And the horse actually runs slower when the are whipped. And if you think about it, if you took the Olympic foot runner, human, and whipped him, you would take his mind off of his job of running, and he would run slower. Why can’t we figure that out? If we can just try to give the horse those things that encourage them to go.

Winchester Lemen: Robust Reuse of Plastic Refuse

Mr. Winchester Lemen has a vision for the plastic we may use just once and then dump. This innovator has created adorable and sturdy chairs, school desks, and tables out of plastic refuse. For 6 years, he worked on developing a way to make a product out of soft plastics, particularly plastic wrappers, such as detergent and shampoo sachets. This material always ended up in landfills as no one else in the recycling industry wanted it. Not only did Mr. Lemen succeed, what he perfected is considered a major step forward in plastic recycling technology.

Brave Protector of Marine Life: Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Part 3 of 3 (INT)

Brave Protector of Marine Life: Captain Paul Watson of the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society, Part 3 of 3 (INT)

Back in 1979, if you said the word “vegan,” nobody even knew what you were talking about - from the planet Vega or something. Nobody knew what you were talking about. So, now, that’s pretty much universal. And the amazing thing about veganism is the incredible surge, about a 600% increase in the last couple of years in people choosing veganism as an alternative. And I think that’s going to grow because one of the things I’ve discovered over the years from social movements is that it doesn’t take a majority to carry out anything.

The Humble Company: Dr. Noel Abdayem's Compassionate Heart

Dr. Noel Abdayem is a dentist in Sweden. When he was still a dental student, he went to Jamaica to work as a volunteer to treat cavities in children.

The Toothbrush handles are made from 100% biodegradable, sustainably-grown bamboo. In addition to toothbrushes, the Humble Company also produces an all-vegan lineup of products. Touched by his volunteer experience in Jamaica, Dr. Abdayem longed to further help the disadvantaged children of the world, particularly in realm of improving their oral health. Initially, he donated toothbrushes to various charity organizations working with kids. Subsequently, he met Dr. Darren Weiss. Out of a common vision, they established the Humble Smile Foundation.
