Finding Sustainability: The Personal and Professional Journey of a Plastic Bag Manufacturer


What if the foundation of your family business were threatened by something out of your control? What if the livelihood of seventy employees and their families were at stake, as the license to operate your business became called into question? What if fifty-seven years of family history, grown through generations of hard work and sacrifice, were at risk of being lost? What if the reason were actually one with which you fundamentally agreed?


Chapter Member and author Trent Andrew Romer is the third-generation co-owner of a family-owned and operated plastic bag manufacturing company. Ocean plastics and the anti-plastic narrative surrounding the industry has had a profound effect on the business and him personally.


Travel to 8 states, 3 national parks and 3 countries to experience the life-changing education and adventures that led Trent to finding sustainability for his plastic bag manufacturing business and himself.
