Imagine a world without plastic waste. That’s the mission for Plastic-Free July – to build a global movement that dramatically reduces plastic use and improves recycling, worldwide. We’ll be posting PFJ tips and blog posts with ideas all month!
It’s a time to consider your purchases and help create less waste. Plaine Products was created with these goals in mind. A convenient way to avoid single use plastic with quality, nontoxic, vegan, cruelty-free products.
Naturally, our shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion are good ways to get started going Plastic-Free for July.
In addition to Plaine Products, safety razors, Dental Lace, Inc, toothpaste powder and bamboo toothbrushes are all great Plastic-Free alternatives. (Photo credit The Little Foxes)
Over 4.7 billion plastic toothbrushes are produced every year worldwide. Switching to a bamboo toothbrush is an easy way to quit plastic & our friends at Brush with Bamboo are a great option! Amazing photo that makes the message clear from Changing Tides Foundation – let’s make the switch so our plastic toothbrush doesn’t join these!
Over 250 pounds of waste can be thrown away per menstruating person in their lifetime! A better option? Menstrual cups! We’ve got a whole post about what they are and how to use them from The Keeper Menstrual Cup. If you purchase a cup from them use the code PLAINE to take $15 off! FYI: The picture is actual of the keeper, the moon cup is the clear silicone option.
Thoughtful packaging makes a huge difference in the fight against single use plastic. Who Gives A Crap doesn’t use plastic packaging and their paper comes from bamboo, a sustainable resource!
