After leaving behind the 9 to 5 grind of city life, Charlie set out on a journey of self-discovery. She found herself in paradise, tucked away in a small town in Costa Rica. It was there that she fell in love with the ocean and all the wonders of the underwater world.
It wasn’t long before she found her soulmate in Costa Rica – a 4 legged sidekick named Ali. Like Charlie, Ali too shares a love for the ocean and adventure.
With so much time spent freediving and spearfishing, Charlie quickly became disheartened as she found so much of the marine life in distress. Fish were caught up in discarded plastic bags, manta rays were struggling in fishing line and plastic utensils and straws littered the ocean floor. This ignited her passion to find a solution to eliminate single-use plastics
Charlie discovered it was not so easy transitioning from the convenience of single-use plastics like grocery bags, plastic straws and throw-away cups, to environmentally-sustainable and available alternatives.
In her efforts to find solutions, Keep Gaia Wild was born. Portable, zero-waste kits with everything you need to become more environmentally conscious. People helping people to better the world, and to keep Gaia wild.
