Describe the Impact of a Project you’re focused on.

We are currently working on Project SUPR, an initiative to eliminate single-use plastics in US professional sports stadiums. The idea is to leverage the incredible platform of sports to make a dent in the growing plastics crisis by providing teams/stadiums a way to reduce their reliance on plastics.

What results do you hope for when the impact is amplified?

We work to work with dozens of stadiums across the country to greatly reduce their use of single-use plastics and certify them using Oceanic Global's ocean champions standards.
