Tackling Waste in the Health and Beauty Industry with Plaine Products’ Lindsey McCoy
After 10 years working on environmental education in the Bahamas, an archipelago full of single-use plastic, Lindsey McCoy and her sister Alison Webster co-founded Plaine Products. This company offers health and beauty products in aluminum bottles that can be returned, refilled and reused. Today we talk about the importance of perseverance and progress over perfection when it comes to an earth-conscious mindset.
Marjorie’s Favorite Quote
I think a lot of people worry that the efforts they make are not good enough or far enough and that keeps them from making any effort at all. I truly believe that we have to celebrate each time we don’t pick up a plastic water bottle or we do compost or we do recycle. Those are all positive good steps that should lead to more good steps. Not beating up ourselves because we don’t. – Lindsey McCoy, Plaine Products co founder Tweet This!

About Marjorie Alexander
Hosting A Sustainable Mind is a dream come true for me. As an environmental enthusiast and lover of podcasts I saw a huge gap in environmental audio shows that interview EVERYDAY people, with RELATABLE experiences and that provide ACTIONABLE advice & opportunities.
The guests that I interview have decided to commit a large portion of their time, effort, resources and money, if not their entire lives, to making the planet a better place for all of us. I admire that. Someone’s got to give these amazing individuals a platform to help inspire even more people.
Alone we can only reach a few. But together we can change the world.
