BUREO

In this episode I sat down with co-founder of Bureo, Ben Kneppers. Patagonia uses Bureo plastic for all of their hat brims because Bureo sources their plastic from discarded fishing nets that would otherwise be polluting our oceans. Fishing nets are among the most dangerous plastic in our oceans, and thanks to Bureo, they’ve saved 3.2 million pounds of it from living on the ocean floor. Tune in to learn how Bureo got started and about some of the important nuances of recycling.
