Commitment: The state or quality of being dedicated to a cause, activity, etc.
Case in point: Bob Purdy.
Purdy made a commitment on January 1, 2011 to hand off a healthy planet to future generations. As a major part of his promise, he has paddled every single day since, approaching 1,500 days of getting on the water. Why? Because the health of the planet--including places he loves, like the British Columbia coast--are at stake.
That journey and what hangs in the balance are the subjects of the documentary, The Paddler. The film shows the community of Tofino, B.C., one of the many that could be impacted greatly by further environmental degradation caused by the fossil fuel industry. Watch the trailer above. The film is available in full through Vimeo On Demand.
