Episode Summary

From the mountains of Colorado, Johnny Le Coq not only leads Fishpond in the creation of cool products, but also in setting a high standard in conservation and global values.  As a Certified B Corp they must continue to pass rigorous standards of verified social and environmental performance and aspire to use the power of markets to solve social and environmental problems.  

Their Cyclepond fabric marked an industry first when they introduced a line of products that were made from re-purposed fishing nets pulled from the ocean environment.

As a lifelong photographer, Johnny’s eye for color, texture and design is integrated in all the Fishpond products.  In a moving story, Johnny shares with us how his loss of sight in one eye has heightened his awareness and created a deep appreciation of his surroundings. 

As a gear nuts, we are fans of the Fishpond products.  Their purposeful sling packs, quality fishing nets and waterproof travel bags are both fun and functional. 

This is a conversation we were really looking forward to.  We hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed recording it…
