Ambassador Omar Munie
Yay! The Plastic Soup Foundation introduces our newest ambassador: Omar Munie.
Omar Munie fled from Somalia to The Netherlands and became a successful entrepreneur and a talented Dutch designer, well-known in the Dutch design industry. Omar cares about sustainability, which he puts into practice with the production of his bags. But it doesn’t end there. He also wants to stop the incredible amount of plastic that ends up in our ocean every single minute. Omar has a love-hate relationship with the ocean: he fled from Somalia by sea and many people on that boat did not survive. In Holland Omar lives nearby the ocean where he loves to go for a stroll. It breaks his heart to see that people throw their garbage on the beach. So Omar didn’t need to think twice when Plastic Soup Foundation asked him to become part of the ambassador team and he immediately said yes. Welcome, Omar!
