In 2015, after traveling the world, SoulBuffalo’s founders recognized the urgent need to create systematic change on a global scale. To do that, we brought a broad spectrum of leaders from across the value chain to the table. Our role in all of this: to control the chaos and navigate change through learning, collaboration and action.
During a transformative two years traveling the world, Dave spent ten nights in a hut in the Amazon with no electricity or running water, which deepened his connection to the natural world. He then toured mountains of waste in India and confronted both the world’s (and his own) consumption habits head-on. After watching glaciers collapse into the sea, Dave had found his calling and began his work leading sustainability efforts.<pP
