Meet JJ Yosh. JJ Yosh is as an Adventurer, Filmmaker, TV and Film Personality, and Eco-visionary using film and TV to inspire people to explore the great outdoors.
JJ is our kind of guy. He’s a chemical engineer and adventurer with a passion for clean energy technology and heart-racing expeditions. Whether it’s rappelling into Thailand’s caverns or exploring Guatemala’s ancient city Tikal, JJ is bound to lead a team there to do it. As a chemist, he has worked with manufacturers to integrate greener practices into their business models. JJ’s work with emission monitoring and environmental clean-up has brought us closer to realising the clean future he imagines, but JJ believes that the answer to our energy problems lies at the source of our energy, not its product.
Ever since JJ could imagine, he dreamt of a world where cities would be built with nature instead of against it. His early fascination with ancient civilisations, the environment, and the great outdoors drove him to search for eco-friendly solutions to better our world.
Over the last 10 years, he has found himself immersed in endless adventures around the world, whether it be climbing mountains, backpacking through forests, or kayaking across the ocean. The more he seeks to explore the world, the more he understands why he is truly here and how important it is to help our planet.
“The environment is huge for me in my life. I am very fascinated with educating myself about various environmental issues, and I am even more passionate about how I can convey these issues to others.
I just want to make it easy and fun for people to be green. And I feel media is a really good tool to attract many more people to the outdoors and to living more green.”
JJ has now started using Water-to-Go filtered water bottles in his adventures and was kind enough to send us his thoughts:
“Water-to-Go is the only water bottle that you will want to take with you everywhere, providing clean water no mater where you go. As an avid runner and adventurer I like everything to be lightweight, fast, and efficient. Water-to-Go allows me to be a minimalist by filtering water as I exercise as opposed to carrying all the water i’ll need for a day or weekend excursion. It’s great because I can be lightweight and still be secure knowing that I won’t run out of water.”
“Speaking from personal experience I know what it is like to run out of water on the trail and even worse to get sick from the water from the streams. A harmless daytime excursion can end up becoming a total nightmare without the proper hydration. Water-to-Go seamlessly solves this by providing water filtration as I drink. Compared to other filters, filtering water can take 20 minutes or longer, but with Water-to-Go, you fill it up, put on the lid, and instantly drink clean water. I think this is why I really love Water-to-Go as its easy and quick. The beauty of traveling to foreign countries and never having to worry about the tap water – Just fill it up, close the lid, and viola clean refreshing water. It really can’t get easier.”
