Kia & the Ballona Creek Trash Interceptor
This year’s L.A. Auto Show opens Friday and Kia Automotive Group wants visitors to know it is doing more than merely making new vehicles. It is making sustainable vehicles because of its plans to use recycled plastic from a 55-ton haul recently reclaimed from the Pacific Ocean in its new EV models. The record-breaking amount of plastic reclaimed by Kia's global partner, The Ocean Cleanup, marks the next phase in a seven-year global partnership agreed in April 2022 as part of Kia’s transformation into a leading sustainable mobility solutions provider.
