Adam Paskowitz — legacy of nomadic family life, reality of plastics in the ocean

 **Interview Episode 103**

As a father, husband, surfer, licensed captain, and general man of the water, Adam has continued the legacy that his father, Doc Paskowitz, set forth some 30 years ago of living life on the road and the ocean, experiencing nature in all of its rawest forms. Whether crossing oceans or walking a beach, Adam and family focus strongly on plastic reduction, leading by their example of removing plastic and making good decisions on their daily use of it with the goal to inspire all of us to do our best to keep this pollution out of our natural world. Adam's stories of his family today at sea and on the road are fun and inspiring and tie back to his days growing up in the nomadic lifestyle that the Paskowitz family is so well known for
