Junk in Public Trailer - H2O Trash Patrol

Editor's Note: Check out this inspiring couple removing trash from San Diego's waterways - by hand - by using a squad of paddleboards to pore over the rivers, streams, and marshes to pick out everything from old tires to dirty hypodermic needles. Commitment. We love it!

Paddle along as H2O Trash Patrol travels deep into the hidden corners and otherwise unreachable waterways of San Diego County. In Junk in Public, a husband and wife team of passionate surfers, Lorenzo and Patti Diaz, feeling a personal call to duty, lead environmental vigilantes far beyond the sunny beaches where most clean ups begin and end. 

Watch how, in 2015 alone, they prevented more than 5,900 pounds of junk from reaching the ocean. People will never look at their local waterways the sam, after seeing what they find. Through sunny days on standup paddleboards, to the deepest, darkest waterways in Southern California, Junk in Public will leave viewers inspired to do their part in stopping junk long before it hits the beach.

Junk in Public is available as a short for film festivals, educators and fundraisers starting spring 2016.

What’s scary is that that’s not even as dirty as the water in Rio that olympic athletes are expected to compete in.

    Totally! It’s pretty gnarly everywhere when you really stop to look at it. We’ve all become accustom to ignoring it.

      Yeah it’s so nasty. I wish there were people like these guys in every city.

Bear Grylls Has A New Interactive Netflix Show

Remember Bear Grylls? The quirky British dude who managed to get himself in the worst possible situations in the backcountry…on purpose? I feel like I can speak for an entire generation when I say Man vs. Wild was certainly on top of my list of shows to watch in the mid-2000s. RELATED: Kilian Jornet Runs Across Sketchy Norwegian Ridges Turns out Grylls is back with a new show on Netflix (it’s 2019 after all) called and it’s got an interesting twist: you get to control what Grylls does.

For anyone else, running along ridges like these would be a serious athletic achievement. For Kilian Jornet, the Catalonian Madman, it's practically a down day. The certain-death-exposure notwithstanding, Jornet makes quick work of the mountains around Åndalsnes, Norway. Related: Kilian Jornet Skis the Troll Wall It makes very little sense how he manages to hop around on a thin ribbon of uneven ridgeline with several-hundred feet of thin air on either side. That being said, his Troll Wall

What do you do when you're walking along the sidewalk and see a truck spraying water/slush heading towards you? Most people would step out of the way and avoid getting blasted by gross road-water. Apparently the folks standing along the tracks in this video aren't "most people" because they stood their ground in the face of an oncoming train spraying a whole lot of snow.
