Natural connection: Sidetracked with Marie-France Roy by Full Moon

Snowboarding has the potential to give us access to the natural world in ways that many other activities can’t. A backcountry expedition is the pinnacle of this, but you don’t have to climb a remote mountain to realize how special the environment is that we ride in. It is something worth preserving. Marie-France Roy passionately believes this and has a message that can be relatable to anyone: do you part, however small or seemingly insignificant it may be. You don’t need to drive an electric car, power your home using solar energy and make your clothes from scratch to show that you care about the environment. Drink water from a reusable bottle, make an effort to recycle, ride a or walk to work if you can. Small things go a long way when the masses participate. That’s Marie’s message, and it’s something that you can easily attain. You just have to try to do the little things.
