Original message: Hello, I wanted to reach out about a potential story idea around an event we’re hosting at the Boulder Theater on April 3. The event is a fundraiser for the 5 Gyres Institute, a group that’s raising consciousness about the five large garbage patches in the world’s oceans and working to clean them up, and the event is the culmination of a group of local businesses’ efforts to band together and raise consciousness of a global issue while at the same time growing our local economy through the power of travel, fun, and sport. Quite a combination, right? To make this happen, we’re bringing out two of our surf athletes, Pete Devries and Josh Mulcoy, some of the best surfers in the world, as well as world renowned surf and travel photographer Chris Burkard, to premiere their new movie, “The Cradle of Storms”, an odyssey documenting a trip to Alaska’s Aleutian Islands, the birthplace of most of our hemisphere’s largest storms. The film will be followed by performances by Denver’s Thee Dang Dangs and MTHDS, and is being supported by the Colorado Coalition, a group of brands including TOPO Designs, working to craft products with a deep story here in Colorado. This cause is particularly meaningful to ZEAL Optics as we make all of our sunglasses from plant-based resins and have eliminated the use of petroleum in our products to decrease the amount of plastic going into our landfills, waterways and oceans. Let me know if there’s any interest in doing a story on this movement, the event, or interviews with the athletes while they’re here. Here’s more on the event, the flyer is attached, and their a short trailer here: http://www.bouldertheater.com/event/zeal-optics-surfer-magazine-movie-premiere Jamie Normandin | Marketing & Event Coordinator 775.762.0304 | jnormandin@zealoptics.com ZEAL Optics — Explore More www.zealoptics.com facebook.com/zealoptics
