Long ago and far away I ran along the shores and in the forest of my childhood playground, Aquidneck Island. The wonderland of sea, wildlife, and woods provided an education and appreciation for our amazing planet.

In my lifetime the increased use of fossil fuels, plastic, and disposable materials has changed our world. I want to change it back.

Straw Bale Films puts the focus on sustainable practices and environmental concerns. If we can all learn, evolve, and have a hearty laugh along the way — even better.

I hope our films inspire you to do what you can, so future generations can experience clean air, safe water, and peaceful coexistence with life on earth.
