Standup Journal & The Nature Conservancy:  Plant a Billion Trees

We are committed in our quest to walk lightly upon the earth and help nurture our environment where we can.  We certainly understand our carbon footprint and are pledging to soften our paper consumption, and protect our world’s forests by donating a percentage of our quarterly income to The Nature Conservancy’s Plant a Billion Trees program.

Standup Journal is no stranger to The Nat Co. We’ve been in collaboration with this hard-working environmental advocacy group before.  Check out “A New Perspective”, a 2016 short film produced by Red Vault Productions for The Nature Conservancy’s Long Island’s Water Quality mini-documentary series here:

Plant Some Trees : Join the Rising Tide & Support the Planet

Won’t you join us as watermen & women, paddlers, surfers, foilers and wind athletes by working to protect our environment? Spread the news, plant a tree, take an action in your own backyard and educate others to do same. We can still preserve our precious eco-systems and offset the changes to our environment if every citizen makes a choice, a firm commitment to preserve the green & blue planet on which we live.  Start where you are.  Do what you can.

We’ve made a choice.  How about you?

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
