Skunkworks Surfing Co. Co-Founders Appointed to be Endowment for Clean Oceans Judges


The Endowment
for Clean Oceans
(ECO) announced that Skunkworks
Surfing Co
. Co-Founders CEO Chris and Ricky Martin have been
selected and they have accepted to be ECO judges. Chris will serve on
the Science and Tech Committee, and Ricky on the Entrepreneur Committee.
An entrepreneur's survival depends on their ability to execute their
technical vision. "They have the sort of innovative entrepreneur and
plastic materials technical expertise we are looking for to be ECO
judges," said Daniel Perrin, Founder and CEO of ECO.

The role of the Entrepreneur Committee is to judge each entry to ECO's
two contests for scalability and executability. The Scientific and
Technical Committee evaluate each entry from that perspective.

"We are extremely excited to be part of this important and historic
work," said the Martin brothers.

ECO's contests are simply to provide a $1 million prize for an
actionable and scalable plan to remove the micro and macro pieces of
plastic from the ocean, and for the $5 million prize, to find an
economically and biodegradable alternative to the five most common
plastics. Here
is an excellent example of the work Skunkworks Surfing Co. is already
doing for our oceans, with their Waste to Waves campaign with Jaguar
Land Rover.
