Galen Tromble is a marine biologist, a former employee of National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Tromble has been conscious of degrading of ecology since his awareness opened up to overall environment. As a yoga teacher, Tromble has turned his yoga and meditation practice for mindfulness towards increased environmental consciousness. He believes that people who practice yoga have seemed to be more conscious in their daily lives. Therefore, for them spreading the message of mindfulness outside yoga class extends to create a holistic lifestyle. His issue stands primarily on awareness about the impact of plastic bottles in ecology, and to encourage people to think carefully about what happens when plastic refuse enters urban water streams. www.yogagalen.com, www.climateyogi.org
