More about the episode
This podcast episode was originally recorded on December 28th, 2020. In an effort to support the launch of Sea Sense Flip Flop’s recently launched Kickstarter and their overall mission and message we have decided to recast their recently launched episode.
Matt sits down with Sea Sense Flip Flops founder Luke McMillan. Sea Sense Flip Flops makes vegan, beautifully made eco-friendly flip flops however, there is much much more behind Sea Sense than just fantastic sandals.
Luke really makes sea sense stand apart and where the really awesome piece of his business comes in is the socio-economic and environmentally sustainable piece of Sea Sense. Sea Sense is working with various grassroots NGO’s to create a system designed to turn plastics into a commodity to incentivize people to help collect plastics on beaches and near waterways to prevent them from getting into our oceans. A big piece of Luke’s plan is to keep things on a grassroots level to make sure that everyone is involved in the mission equally and without vanity and he’s actually willing to go through great lengths to make that so.
In this episode, Luke dives into how he developed a product to help push forward his social and environmentally driven mission (Think Tom’s but, better), what it’s like managing relationships with NGO’s and grassroots organizations, building a community around a global issue, and how to cultivate it in a way that shares the spotlight.
