You might be familiar with this hot hunk from Entourage, however Adrian Grenier has a new agenda: saving the ocean.  Grenier claims his passion for the environment turns the paparazzi and media off (not us!) but no matter what he is determined to make a difference.  He believes his responsibilities on a “human level” are to “give and contribute”.  In fact, in 2008 assisted by a team of green experts, Grenier’s Alter Eco TV show premiered on Planet Green. The show is about better, sustainable, and more ecological methods to transform living space using eco-lovable products. 

We see celebrities talking about saving the environment, but Grenier takes it one step further and has made it a passion of his to see what he can do to change the environment.  He believes it is most important to, “….see first hand what is happening”.  

Grenier prefers to jump in and do rather than sit back and watch.  A perfect example?  He is an advocate for Oceana, a non-profit organization that focuses on water and beach health and is the largest international organization focused on ocean conservation.  In fact, Grenier recently joined Oceana to swim and observe the bluefin tuna. He was honored as an Oceana ambassador at the GQ Gentlemen’s Fund in 2009.

Grenier paired up with Nautica, an apparel and home collection brand that’s name represents, “mankind’s first accomplishments [of] exploring the world”, according to the Nautica 360 blog, to create a limited edition tee. The catch?  One hundred percent of the purchase price from each sale will benefit Oceana.  The tee is both affordable at $25 per shirt and eco chic as it is made of one hundred percent organic cotton.  The tees can be purchased here.

  1. I live on an island. The ocean is our home. Without it, we have no food, no trade, no business, no pleasures of sailing and beachgoing, no marine creature friends, nothing. We respect the ocean, its tsunamis can consume us, even if rising sea levels don’t. It is the difference between life and death, between poverty and plenty, that is why the ocean matters to me.

  2. We may be young, but we understand the importance of saving our planet. We are meeting with Deputy District Director (Andy Bush) for our Congressman (Lynn Westmoreland) later this month to seek support to HR14 “The Ocean Acidification Act”.

    WE are also big supporters of the “Stop Shark Finning” initiative. You can read more about what we do by visiting our site at

    Thanks for caring 😉

  3. I grew up several hours from the ocean, it was always a distant dream to one day live on the beach. Five years ago I got the opportunity when I moved to the Gulf to attend college. Most my free time was spent at the beach, both day and night. The ocean is my medicine. The calm winds and roaring waves sooth and heal me like nothing ever has before. I learned to appreciate it’s all powerful beauty in both the calm and storm. I often encountered some of it’s inhabitants from snorkeling along the jetties, surfing, or even just swimming out past the sand bar. I love swimming through schools of fish and even though I love dolphins, I get even more excited when I come across a shark. The oil spill brought many tears, it is and always will be my home.

  4. As much as I love the ocean for it’s beauty I love it for its ability to help us heal, to help us center and as inspiration.
    It falls on us, now to be proactive to reverse the damage that has been done and to retrain so we are better stewards in the future.

  5. The ocean is where we go to relax and de-stress from day to day life. When you walk along the beach and listen to the waves coming in it gives perspective on life and nature.

  6. Michelle Huynh says:

    When I was younger, I was afraid of water. I was afraid that I would drown and worried for myself. After studying marine biology for a year, I realized the harm that human beings have done to the organisms that live in the ocean. Every year, I volunteered to do coastal clean ups at my local beach, which included picking up trash and cutting up plastic that would harm the animals that live in or near the beach. Through that experience, I’ve learned to appreciate our ocean and hope to inspire others to do the same.

  7. Ocean is my life. I make a living in the ocean. I feed my family through the ocean because I am a diver.
