iansomerhalderNow its 35 minutes! . #VWARS IS LIVE ON @netflix in 35 minutes! Good night you amazing people! Thank you to this cast and crew, digital and PR teams.

Thank. You.
iansomerhalderOfficial photo! I made it Mom! Wall Street! I’m coming for you! The future of business is companies with triple bottom lines: PEOPLE. PLANET. PROFIT This as true as the sky is blue. As true as water is wet. Its also, just the right thing to do. We have no choice. Millennials and Gen Z are going to power this change and people like me and my companies like @imrituals and our BOURBON Company are going to help give them the tools to do it. Let’s not just put our focus into sustainability but rather regeneration. Sustainability is important-do not get me wrong but it will not solve our problems. Regenerative farming and business practices will. When we build a regenerative economy, our climate crisis and our biggest issues will disappear. It’s time. It starts NOW. I got to Executive Produce a film called Kiss the Ground @kisstheground with an amazing filmmaker and team that will show you this so simply and beautifully. I can’t wait for you to see it. Thank you so very much @cnbc and @nyse for giving me the chance to talk about my passions. I believe with steadfast conviction that we will change the world through business, education and regeneration.

iansomerhalder#whatmakesaman ? I’m PROUD to be part of this campaign with the one and only @zegnaofficial . #whatmakesaman ? It’s a very important question for men and boys to ask themselves and to ultimately act on those inner findings. It’s also a very important one for women and girls to ask of men and boys and hold them accountable.
Integrity. Accountability. Compassion. Are just a few words that makes a good man. Gentlemen, it’s time for us ALL to rise to occasion and be stronger than our excuses. To lead by example and find compassion, strength, energy and happiness in our lives and in ourselves. It is imperative that we do this as sons, as fathers, as partners and as men. Our world is a direct reflection of how men have been conducting themselves for thousands of years and it’s time for a massive global paradigm shift. Let’s be better. Every day. I’m with you. Thank you @zegnaofficial for bringing such a powerful message into the world to inspire not just conversation but action. Thank you thank you thank you. I look forward to hearing your thoughts below.
With immense gratitude and appreciation,
iansomerhalderUnfiltered early morning rides with this guy as the sun rises over the Pacific Ocean. Then some hay for breakfast. The level of beauty and love in these creatures is so vast it’s out of this world. Even with the immense pressure and stress of building these companies and finishing #VWars this 1200 lb baby boy reminds me to take a breath for me. It’s hard to do things for ourselves. But we need it. We need our own little rituals for our soul and body to be the best versions of ourselves. Time with a horse is never a waste, even when time is scarce...
iansomerhalder15,000,000 strong. 15,000,000 long. I’m grateful to be your friend and share this experience with you. Lots more to come. I’ve been so quiet for so long. No more. This platform is too powerful and I have too much to share now. I hope I can inspire you from time to time and you can share some of your wisdom and passion with me.
iansomerhalderWe are warming our waters and it will cause more ferocious and more frequent storms. This is not a joke, it’s science and it’s happening. Now. Thank You @yearsofliving for your tireless efforts to keep us informed.
iansomerhalderI have just been quietly off of social media mourning the loss of so much life on our planet happening around us. We are the same biological process as the planet. What we do to our world we do ourselves. The trees are the Earth’s lungs, oceans and rivers act as the world’s cardiovascular system carrying all of the vital nutrients to the world’s organs (the very things that give us life) The unnecessary and illegal man-made fires ripping through the Amazon (the vital lungs of our planet), Hurricane Dorian ripping through the Beautiful Bahamas and the South East on a path of destruction. Now Japan is telling us that they may have to dump enormous amounts of radioactive waste water into the ocean because they are running out of space to store it. Where DOES it end? I can’t be silent any longer... WE MUST stop the destruction and senseless slaughter of all that gives us life: RAIN FORESTS AND OCEANS. We can not afford to lose one more acre of forest, we can’t take any more storms and radioactive waste. HOW DO WE DO THIS? SOMEONE? #Repost @paulnicklen with @get_repost
A team just sent me this photo from San Jose de Campamento,Bolivia. It’s from last night and these are the exact coordinates- S 15.118620° W 60.895914° of the location. Please keep sharing those images!! This is not over. The world deserves to know!! Rain forest arson, hurricanes, and now Fukushima wants to release millions of gallons of toxic radioactive waste water into the ocean. Is it all coming to an end? Follow @oxygenseven @iamnickrose and @earthalliance #ActForAmazonia #savetherainforest
iansomerhalderI took this photo the other day because it seemed like such a powerful message. Right now it’s more powerful than ever... In light there can be no dark. These are dark times America but together we can rise out of the ashes and into the light. Please share your light. My heart aches for those innocent lives lost, their families, their friends and their communities. Right now we need love, we need compassion and we need leadership.
iansomerhalder#wearemaunakea is not just a hashtag. It’s a peaceful battle cry. A reminder that sacred NATIVE land belongs to NATIVE peoples. The world is watching and that destroying this fragile environment without permission and with no conscious is not acceptable. Science is important, so is community. And... #alohaalwayswins
iansomerhalderHappy 4th of July from Paris... Celebrating freedom is such privilege when it should be a right! Thank you to all who worked for and gave their lives for our freedom and for freedom around the world. As divided as our great country is, I can only hope that we have unity today and in the days going forward. Hopefully everyone stays safe over there. Summer time holidays and drinking on those lakes, rivers and streams can get intense. Happy Independence Day!
iansomerhalder5 years ago today this amazing human being came over to my townhouse in Atlanta for tea. We’ve never been apart since... What a magical journey @nikkireed Thank you for teaching me so much every day.

#Regram #RG @greenpeace: We’re on an epic voyage from Pole to Pole, campaigning for a huge network of ocean sanctuaries. If we win, it might be one of the biggest conservation efforts in human history.
Everyone has a part to play. Are you on board yet?

iansomerhalderPhoto shoot day. When you‘re a tired dad and finally trade in fancy set bag for a reusable grocery bag... reading scripts for my beloved @rarebirdsprods and watching Visual Effects edits for #vwars all day. Ready to lounge with my baby and read a nursery rhyme...
iansomerhalder@5ringsbarbell pushing me to the limit to be the strongest and best version of me-thanks brother this partnership means the world to me. Time to kick some major ass. Only some months of post production left on #vwars as @drlutherswannofficial then I’ll get it out the door and onto @netflix for you to see. Hopefully you like it.
Lots to do in the ocean space. Too much plastic and degradation. Plastics stand to wipe us out. BUT with DRAWDOWN in agriculture and enough consumer, legislative and corporate behavioral changes we can do this. There are no problems, only solutions. Going to continue talking with amazing game-changing people on our podcast @gregstoneocean .
I feel like to get all of this done and be a strong good dad I needed to become a warrior. So, that’s what I’m doing. Time is slipping and we haven’t got much before the tipping point tips the wrong way. Just remember, especially if you have kids you’re leaving this world to... Nature doesn’t need us: WE NEED NATURE. I ask. I beg for ALL of us to...
Be strong. Be smart. Be good to the world that is good to you.
iansomerhalderIf you do ANYTHING TODAY-please watch this, subscribe&share it.We’ve worked very hard on it. I’m the Co-Executive producer, a guest and couldn’t be more proud and excited. My dear brother @gregstoneocean is one of the world’s leading Ocean Scientist and I’ve team up with him to create a Podcast to bring some of the greatest voices to speak on the importance of our oceans. Our future is dependent our oceans. We will discuss not only the dire situation that are our oceans but how to fix them. Real solutions. Real facts. Real people. We must STOP senselessly polluting and over fishing waters or there will be no us. Period. The science is in. Are you in? I have been diving for years with Dr. Stone&what you will learn from him in a short span of time will change your life. He’s one of my greatest heroes and I’m pretty certain he will be one of yours. Our AMAZING Season 1 guests include (the one and only) Jared Diamond, Philippe Cousteau, Ocean Ramsey and Kelly Slater, Benjamin Kay (a Marine Biologist and high school teacher changing kids’ lives in Santa Monica,CA), Wyland the incredible marine artist, Dr. Stone and more powerful people that are voices of the Sea. Such a powerful and unique group of people. Oh and I’m a guest on our show too as I mentioned earlier!

iansomerhalderBeen hiding. Watching from the sidelines or the mountain top, I’m not really sure... I had to step away from devices taking over my life, simplify and be a good dad. The only way is to be present. Still buried in #VWars post production and building my companies. Lots to share for sure. Co-exec producing a podcast with one of the world’s leading marine scientists to start breaking the lid off of powerful and necessary stories told by powerful and necessary people. To any of the 750 unread text messages I have, my apologies to all, but spending 5 hrs per day typing or speaking into a little device is not how I can spend my life. I’ll figure it out. Thanks for your patience.
Many posts coming.

iansomerhalderHappy belated #earthday beautiful Earth Mama. Without your endless beauty I would not be able to play airplane with my daughter down a wooded path that leads to a beautiful lake. It is our duty to take care of you and thank you daily for your life-giving and loving air, land water, plants, and creatures. We can do better for you and we will.
iansomerhalder2019... It was supposed to be the year of the Faux hawk(ish). The priorities for the year (other than being a great dad and husband of course) were/are:
-New look ✅
-Raise a SHIT ton of $ for @isfofficial with the new wine tasting @omaze campaign I NEED YOUR HELP NOW!
-Release #VWars (working on dates)
-Kick ass with my production company @rarebirdsprods ✅
-Launch wine company @D2Dwines ✅
-Launch new spirits company with someone you know well (coming🔜 to a glass near you) -Be a decent human being (working on that)
After the 3 glasses of wine wore off and the clippers ran out of battery... something hit me like a ton bricks: a little thing called “continuity” for aka #VWars reshoots! I stopped trimming... Shit. Biotin smoothies here we come- gotta grow this shit out fast... Hair growing out and gearing up for production now. So much gratitude to you all for so much support. It means the world...
iansomerhalderHappy #nationalpuppyday from me and this little guy. Puppies are amazing, they remind us to be present and happy. Unfortunately adult humans send their older pets to the shelter to be put down or adopted or put them on Craigslist to make room for puppies around the holidays... It’s not fair. If you or someone you know have done this or intend to do this please discourage them. Pets are members of our families and do NOT deserve to be abandoned or hrown out for new little ones...
iansomerhalderTODAY I’m celebrating #plantaseedday It’s a campaign by my friend @kimbalmusk and his non-profit @biggreen to teach the power of growing healthy, real food. Join me by planting a seed with your friends and family. Make the pledge to plant at plantaseedday.org I’m so proud to be a part of this! It’s so important what happens when the connection is made when a human to nurtures and grows a seed. Heal ourselves, heal the planet and build a strong community around healthy food. It’s the future and it’s happening right now in our present. Let’s do this!
