Plaine Products is proud to publish our first-ever Plaine Products Sustainability Report highlighting our accomplishments for 2017 and our goals for the future.
Plaine Products was founded to help solve the plastic problem. Globally, we produce 300 million tons of plastic waste every year, 78% of which is NOT reclaimed or recycled. 8 million tons of plastic ends up the in ocean every year. By 2050 there could be more plastic than fish in the ocean. A material that lasts for thousands of years doesn’t make sense for single-use bottles.
In 2017, we launched our business with three products. Since then, we have added five travel size products, body lotion, hand wash, face wash, face moisturizer, and a new scent to our line of shampoo and conditioner. Each month our business has grown, and we hear from people that they want more options.
Read more about how we’ve already reduced greenhouse gas emissions, packaging waste, achieved various goals and more in only one year! You can also learn more about our goals for the next 2-5 years. For example, we aim to implement a carbon neutral shipping option and buy 100% recycled aluminum bottles by 2022. We also have a goal of selling 100,000 bottles by 2022 and we hope you can join us in achieving that goal!
Huge thanks to Bobbi Lesser, graduate of the Duke Nicholas School of the Environment, for her help in this project.
