Read the full story from Waste360.

In our latest episode of NothingWasted!, we chat with Ian Rosenberger, founder & CEO of First Mile and Day Owl. 

First Mile supports micro-economies in underdeveloped communities by collecting plastic bottles and turning them into yarn that is used by apparel, footwear, and accessories brands including Day Owl, which sells sustainably created backpacks. 

We chatted with Ian about leading through a crisis, the responsibility of business in solving the waste problem, creating a circular product, and more.
