Olympic Culinary Loop (OCL) is the primary Tourism & Economic Advisory Seat on NOAA's Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary Advisory Committee. As well as a founding board member of Eat Local First - Olympic Peninsula. We are dedicated to education and the advancement of local and sustainable agua and ag farming practices.
An emerging NOAA Blue Star Economy initiative spearheaded by OCL is directed towards the hospitality industry's reduction of microplastics into the waste stream, as they eventually contaminate the water column and impact fisheries. This consumer and industry education effort is combined with our ongoing work of supporting the NOAA's Olympic Coast National Marine Sanctuary as the Sentinal site for OA (Ocean Acidification) research.
