Explorer, Environmental Advocate, Co-Founder & President of EarthEcho International

Being the grandson of a legendary explorer must have its perks. Captain Jacques Cousteau’s name alone is synonymous with marine life, but Philippe Cousteau, Jr. is creating his own adventurous legacy, and a green one at that. Enter EarthEcho International, the D.C. based non-profit with a mission to empower youth through action that restores and protects our water and planet. Let’s be honest, he’s a modern day Captain Planet. EarthEcho educates children on sustainable practices and ocean conservation in D.C. and beyond. Cousteau’s famous last name just serves as a small catalyst to get his message and mission out there—he’s on the ground and in the classroom educating the next generation on how they can be planeteers as well.
