At Sema4, we’re passionate about sustainability and taking care of the environment. Whether it’s reducing the amount of paper we print, or reusing bags from our plastic bag bank, we make sure we do our part in reducing waste.

An estimated 12.7 million tonnes of plastic is added to our oceans every year, which has a detrimental effect on ocean wildlife and the global ecosystem. We can start to tackle this by raising awareness and taking steps to reduce and recycle the amount of plastic we dispose of. That’s why we love Charlie Feist’s innovative and creative approach to tackling this problem. Their backpacks are produced from PET plastic bottles. 400 billion of these bottles are purchased every year with most ending up in our ocean. Check out their story here:
