Plaine Products has a mission to reduce waste in the world and help eliminate single use plastics. That’s why we offer natural products in aluminum bottles that are an easy alternative to plastic. We also support nonprofit partners that are working towards the same mission.
5 Gyres empowers action against the global health crisis of plastic pollution through science, art, education, and adventure. They have covered more than 50,000 miles across the North Pacific, North Atlantic, Indian Ocean, and South Atlantic Gyres, as well as the Great Lakes, to study plastic pollution. Through their educational presentations, they bring the expedition experience to students and parents. They teach conservation by engaging communities to think about how to protect our oceans by making smarter choices on land.
Marcus Eriksen, 5 Gyres research director and co-founder said, “The best way to solve the world’s ocean plastic problem is to prevent trash from getting there in the first place.” To that end we are proud to be a part of their Plastic Free Shopping Guide. Products in their Plastic-Free Shopping Guide provide ways to decrease dependence on plastic while supporting the 5 Gyres mission. The Guide was created in response to daily questions they received about how people can live with less plastic. While the answer can be as simple as tossing a reusable water bottle or cup in your bag, they decided to make it easy by offering products to help all in one location. We are proud to be supporting 5 Gyres as one of our nonprofit partners.
