Proud eco-geek and science communicator Danni Washington is making waves with her non-profit work and as the host of her own Fox-syndicated television show Nature Knows Best. She also founded her own non-profit called Big Blue and You and puts on a yearly event called ArtSea in Miami.
Wanting to bridge the gap between scientists and every day citizens, Danni embarked on a wild adventure that has taken her from recording videos for text books, to YouTube and winning a contest led by clothing brand Roxy, and onto being the star of her own tv show.
Listen in as Danni tells us how she made it all happen and the time she tried to convince comedian Kevin Hart to go green.
