As 2021 comes to a close, we’re taking a look back at the 2021 goals we set for ourselves and reflecting on the progress we’ve made. We truly could not have accomplished any of our goals without the best community by our side.
Here’s to setting and reaching more goals together in 2022!
Opened our new warehouse!
In late 2020, we purchased an abandoned building to convert into our new warehouse and showroom! Our warehouse team worked extremely hard to ensure that all materials from the previous building were sent to be reused or properly recycled!
Diverted a total of 350,000 plastic bottles.
We didn’t quite reach our goal of 400,000 bottles, but we’re close! As of December 2021, we’ve diverted over 350,000 bottles from our oceans and landfills. That’s 112,000+ bottles this year alone!
Launched our full Unscented Line!
We were finally able to launch our highly requested Unscented Line! In February, we released our Unscented Shampoo, Conditioner, Body Wash, and Body Lotion, and in June, we expanded to our Unscented Face Wash and Face Moisturizer.
Print instructions on our boxes.
We’re now printing our instructions directly on our boxes, eliminating the need for our card inserts! You may still see our older boxes with card inserts because we want to get as much use out of our existing boxes before they are recycled.
Launched our Plaine Community Spotlight Series!
In addition to increasing collaborations with BIPOC environmental activists and smaller creators, we’ve created a program to highlight diverse members of our community through video content. Check out our IG Reels and TikTok (@plaineproducts) to see their amazing videos!
Partnered with 185 retailers!
In order to increase access to our products, we are always looking to partner with more refill shops and hospitality locations. We’ve exceeded our goal of 150 partnerships and are currently working with 185 retailers across the country!
Progress, Not Perfection
Thank you all for an amazing 2021! We are so grateful for your support and are incredibly proud of the progress we’ve made together as a community. We cannot wait to reach more goals together in 2022!
