Sustainable World Tour

Renewable Biobased Resources - Smart for tomorrow. Even smarter for today.

OBIC hit the road in summer 2014 with the Sustainable World Tour to promote the Biobased Promise. The tour is a first-of-its-kind public awareness campaign to optimize marketplace engagement and promote biobased alternatives.7794711_orig.png

The tour includes interactive exhibits transported by a biobased-branded vehicle to encourage consumers to purchase biobased alternatives and excite young people about future careers in sustainability.

If you would like additional information about how you can request a visit, advertise your brand, or exhibit your products, please contact Shannon Hollis, Program Manager, at (614) 292-1748 or

Events the Sustainable World Tour has visited:

  • National FFA Convention
  • Ohio State Fair
  • 4-H camp
  • Classrooms/schools
  • Dayton Dragons Baseball Game

The Sustainable World Tour is funded through sponsorships. We will work with you and The Ohio State University to provide recognition of your gift. Any support is appreciated - from product samples to get into consumers' hands to monetary resources to help staff and to outfit the interactive components of the vehicle.  Together, we can make consumers feel good about the products they use, the companies they support, and the environment they leave behind.
