Bodhi and River Robbins are 11-year-old boys who have autism. They didn’t talk until they were almost 5, and are still not potty trained. But these twins have a passion for the Earth, and a vision of a sustainable future.

They are home-schoolers who love the Earth, surfing, the pop music charts, and making people laugh. They wrote speeches in honor of Earth Day, included here, and every word is their own. Bodhi and River are participating in the Son-Rise program, and they love it.
