Marlow Baines is a 17 year old from Boulder, Colorado. She began her journey finding her voice as an Earth Guardians National Council member. The National Council training in 2017 inspired her to do two major things. First, she launched a campaign called “Project Confidence”, which was geared towards shifting culture around school dress code from something negative to something positive and empowering for young girls. Second, she realized that education could be as inspiring as her Earth Guardians work which propelled her to leave public High School and begin a new self-learning journey.   “Despite your age, background or passion, you have a voice worth sharing.”   Shortly thereafter, she began working with Earth Guardians as a Regional Crew Director for the Central U.S. Between planning multi-district dances for high schoolers, home schooling, and working with Earth Guardians, she has found a passion for bringing people together and talking about self care, because healing yourself, mentally and physically, is the first step in mending our relationship with the planet. Marlow, at 6’2, loves the (ecofashion) runway, as well as the basketball court. She writes, she travels, and is honored to represent the beautiful organization of Earth Guardians.

My name is Teotecpatl Santin Martinez, I live in Mexico City, I dedicate myself to cultural art, dance, theater, music, spirituality, and especially to fighting against climate change, I’m committed to raising awareness about the importance of one of the biggest problems of our era, climate change.  Something that inspired me a lot to be a part of Earth Guardians was to see the situation of the world, the pollution in my community, the waste and misuse of water, the overexploitation of our natural resources, the mistreatment of animals, the disconnection of people with their spiritual origin with the Earth…I came to realize that the only way to heal the earth and the world is to heal our lives.  I am currently working very hard in Mexico on the reconstruction of Mexico Anahuac after the earthquake of September 19, 2017. The project is about the conscious reconstruction of this sacred place and includes permaculture, renewable energy systems, and is centered around bringing forth humanity towards a more balanced spiritual, social, emotional, cultural, physical, material and educational world. We are currently working on vegetarian food sources, which is one of the most powerful weapons against climate change.
