The Scuba Diving industry is unique. It is designed to provide an unparalleled experience in a world unlike the one humans reside. Divers trade their tennis shoes for a pair of neoprene booties and strap on equipment designed to keep them comfortably breathing underwater.

Our lives are driven by purpose. The ability to make a difference and to explore are just a few of the reasons the human endeavor continues to burn at its very core.

Last year, my household came to the realization that there was a massive wasting of a plastic product in our home. Every morning, I would sit on the couch and enjoy thirty minutes of reading. I would have a favorite mug full of fresh coffee from my Keurig. One morning, while perusing Amazon, I noticed there was an offer for a reusable k-cup. The wife and I realized that each of us used one k-cup every morning. Let's say we enjoyed 300 cups of coffee that year. It didn't seem like much, but to admit we threw away 600 little...
