You may be sitting on plastic bottles in your car – Carol Kordich, head of Global Sustainable Fabric Strategies and Development at Ford Motor Company explains to Joan how significant parts of several Ford cars and trucks are made from sustainable materials, including seat fabric made in part from the REPREVE material that turns plastic water bottles into car seats.
Listen to Carol and Joan talk about how Carol is transitioning Ford to achieve its goal of 25% recycled materials in ALL Ford vehicles – including in their big, brawny muscle truck the F-150 – and how they are transforming the supply chain to be more sustainable.
Carol’s own career transition story is inspiring too. Listen below.
