The Starfish: Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25

By Kyle Empringham
With that steady advice, I’ve begun The Starfish (, a site dedicated to making a difference. We’ve even launched our Top 25 Environmentalists Under 25 list, which is being released on a daily basis (one finalist per day). Our number one finalist will be shown on November 2.
I highly encourage you all to check out these wonderful individuals. When we received these applications, we knew there was something special about all of them. These young eco-enthusiasts come from all across Canada (many originating in the States), and have serves as a perfect role model for the entire nation. From leaders in Obama’s presidential campaign, to founders of Greenpeace chapters and sitting on the Board of Directors for non-profit groups, these students have shown what it means to care for this planet.
