Catch this latest episode of Waste360’s Nothing Wasted! Podcast. OceanCycle’s Co-founder Ryan Schoenike sits down with host Liz Bothwell to discuss the importance of policy in tackling the ocean-plastics issue, the challenges related to low-value plastic, extending producer responsibility, and more.

He retraces his first steps in the recycling business from launching a reusable bag campaign in sixth grade to creating some of the first consumer goods made with ocean-bound plastic and now OceanCycle—the industry’s first and leading certification program for ocean-bound plastics.

Ryan speaks to community impact at the core of our mission. By working to prevent ocean plastic, we not only create profitable new products out of recycled ocean-bound material but also generate income into local communities to elevate workers. There’s a lot of great content here and a lot to think about.
