We are thrilled to announce that Plaine Products is now shipping to Canada directly from our on-line shop! Thank you to everyone who took the time to write and ask us to take this step. We hope this is only the beginning of our international growth and our work to help end single use plastic bottles!
How does shipping to Canada work?
While we are in the testing phase for Canadian orders the shipping cost will be the actual cost of sending products to your address. Once you enter your shipping address the cost will adjust as you add or subtract products. We are also exploring wholesale opportunities in Canada, so hopefully there will be even more options for purchasing soon. Please contact us if you have any questions, or check out our new wholesale page if that is of interest!
How do Bottle Returns from Canada work?
Plaine Products doesn’t currently have a method for sending individual customer’s bottles directly back to the U.S. from Canada. We are in talks with a few more Canadian retail locations that we hope to add as drop off alternatives. Until that happens, our Canadian customers have three options:
1 – Our customers can pay to send empty bottles back to Plaine Products in the U.S. to be sterilized, refilled and reused:
803 Floral Ave
Terrace Park, OH 45174 USA
2 – You can pay to send your empty bottles back to our current Canadian partner. They will hold on to the bottles and Plaine Products will pay to have them brought back to the US to be cleaned, refilled and reused once there are enough bottles.
3837 Point McKay Road NW
Calgary, AB, T3B 4V7 Canada
3 – Customers can recycle the aluminum bottles. The good news is aluminum can be recycled with no loss in quality. That means it can be recycled indefinitely. When plastic is recycled it is down-cycled into a lower form until it becomes unusable. Plastic rarely makes it through the recycling process more than once before it is sent to a landfill.
Thank you for your support of Plaine Products and our growth. We couldn’t do it without you. As always we appreciate your help in spreading the word, via posts or our Plaine Promoters program which we can now also open up to our friends in Canada!
