[Britni] I came to work at HQ for the first time today in almost two weeks. I have been working from home while Casey has been fulfilling online orders and keeping salt, salting.It is strange to be here. It is strange to drive though town and see cars on the road - I don't know what I expected.. tumble weeds and skeletons? No. But this is such a strange time we are living in.

No, not in response to the emails with glittery language like "prude ass bitch" or "sucking a donkey-sized dick" or "rapidly deteriorating fucks given" .. Nope, not those emails.

  Sean, feeling sad about all of his plastic use. After my homework last week for my Single Use Plastic post in our collaborative social media series with the Center for Alaskan Coastal Studies I'm ready to confess a few things.  I began doing some research on types of single use plastics as, they are one of the main sources of marine plastic pollution. What I discovered was REALLY OVERWHELMING. There are so many sites and organizations who are publishing information about the single use plastic problem. It was great to discover that there are so many passionate people spreading awareness...
