Cole Gibbs

Cole Gibbs, founder & CEO of Dama and an innovative entrepreneur, is pioneering the development of sustainable hemp plastic and compliant packaging solutions for a variety of industries. With only nine percent of all plastic recycled worldwide, and the plastic waste problem growing out of control in all industries, Cole established a practical and sustainable strategy for business and industry using the power of hemp and other green technologies. Dama is powered 100% by renewable wind energy.

Cole’s concern for the overwhelming amount of plastic waste clogging our seas and damaging soil is what challenged and motivated him to take action. Over the last two years alone, Cole and his team have made a massive impact on the world today by preventing over 1000 tons of petroleum plastic from entering our environment.

As he looks to the future, Cole believes his years of research in the area of sustainable hemp plastic packaging, combined with hundreds of relationships in business and industry, will prevent thousands of tons of petroleum plastic from damaging our planet. Cole, an active outdoor enthusiast, attended Salt Lake Community College and Weber State University where he studied Automotive Technology with an emphasis on alternative fuels, including Compressed Natural Gas (CNG), Biodiesel, Hydrogen Fuel and Hemp Ethanol. He was also a high altitude prototype test driver for Jaguar/Land Rover.
Cole has spoken at numerous events, expos and symposiums on sustainability, bioplastics, and waste management. Sharing his knowledge and expertise so we can all live a more sustainable life.
