StormGeo's Company Pledge

By the year 2050, there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish. As 75% of our work is done on the ocean, we're working to keep those waters clean. Our employees have taken the pledge to reduce their consumption of single-use plastics, now solely using StormGeo stainless steel straws and reusable water bottles. While these efforts may seem small, see why these kinds of steps are so important...
