We've all seen that pic by now...the turtle and the straw...and this is what Third Eye Blind singer Stephan Jenkins, avid surfer, said about it...“Even though our music isn’t punk, our ethos is. That image of this ancient and vulnerable animal that I’ve been in the water with being subjected to this disgusting convenience. It just got me.”

They've always thought green, in fact, on their first effort to eliminate plastic on tour, Stephan estimates they saved 16,500 bottles "that would have ended up in a landfill or the ocean and end up staying there long after we're dead."

He was also awarded for his work with the Jimmy Miller Foundation in May, which helps veterans suffering with PTSD learn how to surf as a form of therapy.
