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.
UPSTREAM has been hard at work for nearly 20 years – ideating, co-creating and accelerating real-world practical solutions to plastic pollution and today’s throw-away culture. They are building a movement to “make throw-away go away” through business, policy and cultural innovation.
They helped create #BreakFreeFromPlastic – an international movement of more than 1400 NGOs. They’ve built networks of local government, non-profit and business leaders throughout the US and Canada – and have helped pass more than 100 laws now on the books. They’ve formally advised the UN’s Environment Program on plastics strategies. UPSTREAM is an information hub on all things plastic-related and have a great podcast, The Indisposable, that celebrates solutions to plastic pollution and features heroes of the movement.
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.
