ABOUT PLAINE PRODUCTS
FOUNDED BY TWO SISTERS
Lindsey and Alison, the founders of Plaine Products, began with their vision to have less plastic waste in the world.
Every piece of plastic that has ever been made still exists.
Think about that. Then know that globally, we produce 300 million tons of plastic waste every year, 78 percent of which is NOT reclaimed or recycled. That’s a lot of plastic.
Founded by two sisters, Lindsey and Alison Delaplaine, Plaine Products began with a dream to have less plastic waste in the world.
We’ve tried and personally approved all of our products. Not only do we use them, our kids and husbands use them, along with our extended family and friends.
Lindsey spent 10 years living and working in The Bahamas. There she saw first hand the consequences of our disposable lifestyle: plastic on the beach, in the ocean, and along the roads. After looking around her bathroom and realizing how much plastic she owned, she called her sister, Alison, and they started talking about how to change that, and how to make it easy for others to do the same.
Together we spent a year researching natural products until we found some whose quality amazed us while staying true to our rule of being chemical-free. We run all of our ingredients through the Environmental Working Group’s database to make sure they are safe and non-toxic.
Single-use plastic and disposable lifestyle choices are hurting the planet. Plaine Products wants to help change that.
PROGRESS, NOT PERFECTION
We recognize that we will never fully achieve zero waste and we want to meet everyone wherever they are on their low waste journey. Instead of feeling overwhelmed and shutting down in the face of waste and climate crises, we cheer every small change that each of us as individuals and businesses make towards a better world.
We recognize that we can’t solve the problems of plastic pollution and climate change alone. We partner with advocates, like-minded nonprofits, and businesses in an authentic way to achieve real change. We choose community over competition.
We respect and honor the diversity of all individuals and strive to include them in all of our actions, through hiring, partnering and communications.
From offering refillable, nontoxic, plastic-free products to cultivating a space that supports long-term relationships with our customers and employees, we operate with the goal of sustainability for our planet and our community.
We are committed to being transparent, honest, and providing timely communication with customers & employees in all that we do including our ingredients, reuse systems, and sustainable business practices.
We work to empower customers to take positive action to reduce waste, with our own products and educational efforts around the plastic crisis. Additionally, provide the tools and autonomy to empower employees, both in the workplace and out in the world, to achieve our company’s goal of less waste on the planet.
We recognize that environmental and climate justice can not come without social justice. We will speak out against corporate polluters. We must amplify the diverse voices that are educating us on environmental racism. We must continue to learn more and do more to fight for a better environment for everyone.
