My name is Katie Weiler, I live in Portland, ME. I’ve been single use plastic free since 2017 and I have a passion for ending the creation of virgin plastics on this planet. I founded Viable Gear in 2021 with the mission to eliminate petroleum based plastics entering our ocean as ghost gear by creating renewable material based equipment for the aquaculture and marine fishing industry.
I come from a marketing and management consulting background with a new push as a founder for an early stage company in the blue economy.
