Plastic-Free Solutioneers

This episode features winners from UPSTREAM’s recent Plastic Free July contest, where we passed the mic to our listeners to highlight your stories of how you are building a #betterwaythanthrowaway.

Our featured winners are Maladen Gayuek, Cofounder and CEO of PlasticScore, an app that rates restaurants on their single-use plastic usage; Jess Blasko, who is developing a COVID-friendly Refill Station in Portsmouth, New Hampshire; and Ryan Cope, who amplifies stories of sustainability successes through her work with Seven in the Ocean.
