“Talking with Erin Schrode for a half an hour, it really went by like it was a minute. And to capture in thirty seconds all that Erin is doing is totally impossible. I would describe her as purpose passion, certainly a lot of energy and positive attitude. She and her mother have started in the US and organization, Teens Turning Green, although Erin is actually American, I think she is one of the most well-versed world citizens that I have come across, visiting forty countries, studying right now in Spain. Erin, when the earthquake and disasters hit Haiti, which many of you are aware of, she was out there as one of the first to help and has been back there several times. She started a wonderful program there, The Schoolbag program, to get children back in school and bring their lives, in difficult circumstances, back to as normal as could be. Erin clearly is an activist. What I like about her is that she understands the power that you have and certainly the power of the social media to rally people together to drive change. Through her numerous blogs, websites, and activities, she has a following that at normal times was 30,000 or more people, but she is just telling me that her latest initiative which she launched, which she calls Project Green Challenge, is getting over a million people activated. And if the world needs an Erin, we certainly have found one and I am glad I met her.” – Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever
