Gay Browne & Greenopia for the Santa Barbara Aquathon!

Channelkeeper is so excited to welcome our newest sponsor, Greenopia, onto the Santa Barbara AQUATHON team!

Greenopia is the ultimate green search engine that finds sustainable solutions for every day living by offering a comprehensive guide to over 110,000 eco-friendly businesses. Its founder, Gay Browne, is not only an environmental advocate and humanitarian, but also a Santa Barbara local who has committed her life to helping others live a more conscious, healthy lifestyle. She has received numerous awards for her work in the environment.

In 2009, she was presented with the Faith 2 Green (formally know as Coalition on the Environment and Jewish Life) prestigious Environmental Business of the Year award. That same year, Gay also was chosen to speak at the Green Inaugural Ball, welcoming President Obama and Vice President Joe Biden to the White House. In 2008, Gay was honored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) by receiving the annual Climate Protection Award in recognition of her outstanding work fighting climate change.

Gay's work and Greenopia's mission have helped guide consumers to make informed decisions that positively impact both their personal health and the environment. Channelkeeper couldn't be more thrilled to have Gay on-board at this year's Aquathon to not only celebrate a healthy ocean but also the healthy, outdoor lifestyle that is such a big part of our community!
