CNN producer note
wjnichols came up with this idea: 'People are asked to pass their blue marble forward to someone doing good for our ocean planet, so the marbles travel from person to person and stories are shared through various social media.'

I had the great pleasure to work with Jean-Michel Cousteau and the Ocean Futures team on their current film on the oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico.
Our conversations about and experiences with the oil were sobering and heavy.
But we shared a nice moment, exchanging blue marbles.
I had been carrying a 100 year old blue clay marble for Mr Cousteau, in honor of his father's 100th birthday anniversary.
I was finally able to give it to him personally. Jean-Michel was noticably touched. It was an honor to be able to share one of 1 million blue marbles being shared all over the world with him personally.
