Being part of the solution takes thinking outside the box. Five years ago, if you had seen garbage on the beach, would you have suspected that those same waste materials could be recycled into soap dispensers and footwear? When companies take up the challenge to become more sustainable, real change is possible. We have assembled some of the most innovative disruptors in the space of sustainable design to share how ocean health is a company-wide priority in their corporate mission.
