PhilippeCousteau Jr

He’s the son of environmental documentary filmmaker Philippe Cousteau and grandson of conservationist/scientist, Jacques-Yves Cousteau, but Philippe Cousteau Jr. is making his own mark in conservation and carrying on his family’s legacy at the same time.

“If you’re old enough to remember, and our childhoods were in any way similar, it would certainly include many hours transfixed in front of the television watching the remarkable underwater adventures of the iconic Jacques Cousteau and the ship Calypso,” said Stephanie Oakes who along with her husband, Chris Maxtone-Graham and Bernadette Schaeffler are bringing Philippe Cousteau Jr. to Dallas for an event tomorrow, March 18.


“I’m proud to host Jacques’ grandson, Philippe Cousteau Jr. and EarthEcho International in my home March 18 for his trip Dallas,” said Bernadette Schaeffler. “So many of my home collections are inspired by nature, specifically our worlds oceans. This nature needs to be preserved for my son’s generation.”

Several pieces of Schaeffler’s gorgeous etched Czech glassware and pewter collections feature underwater motifs such as seahorses, tropical fish, and the very waves that crash against the rocks in the bays, beaches, and estuaries that the Cousteau family has fought to protect through three generations. The collection, which honors the environment with exceptional style, is available at the Bernadette Schaeffler Collection boutique in the Dallas Design District.

Philippe co-founded EarthEcho International, whose mission is to empower youth to take action that restores and protects our water and our planet.
