Social Impact Heroes – Wes Carter

Social Impact Heroes is a site dedicated to celebrating the accomplishments of great people who are using their gifts to help impact society and the planet.

They recently interviewed Atlantic President, Wes Carter, as part of their series about individuals and organizations making an important social impact. As a lifelong surfer, outdoorsman, and business leader, Wes launched A New Earth Project in early 2021 with the goal of connecting the professional surfing community, who are advocates for clean water and environmental causes, with the packaging supply chain who can enact change.

The mission of A New Earth Project is to rid the world’s oceans of plastic pollution.

This in-depth interview unveils Wes’s “Aha Moment” and how he was able to identify his passion, connect with that, and turn it into something much bigger.  It also reveals his most interesting stories since launching this project, the funniest mistakes he’s made, and the steps he’s taken to get it all started.  And Wes shares the 5 things he wishes someone told him when he first started A New Earth Project.  He even goes deep into contemplating the essence of happiness and how he was able to connect with true happiness in his life.

Thank you to Social Impact Heroes, Medium’s Authority Magazine, and Thrive Global for taking the time to sit down with Wes to create this beautiful and thoughtful piece. We’re all excited about the impact A New Earth Project can have in helping to shape the hearts, minds, and day-to-day practices of citizens and businesses around the world.
