Zero Waste, Plastic Free Bathroom

In Partnership with Plaine Products

We likely don’t go a single day without using something made out of or packaged in plastic. How crazy is that? Our dependence on plastic wreaks havoc not only on the ecosystems it accumulates in, but on our own health as well.

But, plastic’s widespread individual use is exactly what makes it such a prime target for individual-charged change!

Plastics are offered to us at every turn, which means that every day we have the chance (or more likely many chances) to say ‘no’ to plastics, and those small refusals make a biiig impact!

And that’s not to say that ending plastic pollution is only an individual burden—our corporate leaders have a huge responsibility in advancing zero waste solutions and ending the plastic crisis.

So, when companies embrace that responsibility and lead the way forward, we happily jump on board!

If we can shift our everyday habits, together we can create a waste-free world. But let’s just take it one step at a time… A great place to start? The bathroom.  

Plaine Products believes waste is a design flaw and is reimagining personal care to include the care of our planet and its inhabitants. In doing so, they are paving the way for the zero waste and plastic-free future we need.
