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!
