What’s your favorite vacation spot? Taiwan and Japan in the spring! or Hawaii!

What makes you happy? Spending time with my grandparents, working with students, when a lesson plan goes better than expected, randomly dancing in my room, planning family parties and games, a clean and tidy space, making YouTube videos, and being outside on a sunny and breezy day.

What’s your favorite sustainability product outside of Plaine Products? I love packing lunches and I am always searching for tools to make our lunches waste free. My husband carries his lunches in a stainless steel tiffin I got from Food 52, my favorite cooking website. My daughter is all about the Bento Box. My boys are old-school brown baggers, but I love using compostable sandwich bags since anything reusable likely will never make it home.

What makes you happy? Time outdoors running, swimming, paddle boarding or soaking in the sunshine and the salt air. A great book. Opening a new pack of multi-colored Flair pens. You can tell my mood by what color I use!

What’s your favorite vacation spot? Ireland, Hawaii, Colorado, Florida-Anywhere in the mountains or on the beach with my family.

BECCA

What’s your favorite Plaine Product? It’s hard to choose but I really enjoy the shampoos, especially the Rosemary Mint Vanilla. My hair is really thick and not all natural shampoos can do the job. This one does!

What’s your favorite sustainability product outside of Plaine Products? Oh gosh, so hard to pick! This might be strange but I really love menstrual cups. They are a total game-changer but also a much better option for the environment.

I try to drink a lot of water everyday so I need it!!

MATT

Media Consultant

When did you join Plaine Products? I don’t know if I’ve ever officially joined. I’ve always just been hanging around.

What’s your favorite Plaine Product? The Rosemary Mint Vanilla Shampoo, the original product and the most used in our house.

What’s your favorite sustainability product outside of Plaine Products? Reusable grocery bags. It’s so simple and so distressing the massive amount of plastic bags that are used in food stores. Why is that still a thing?

What’s your favorite vacation spot? Hmmm….South America? Too vague? We don’t do a lot of repeat vacations, so much to see. Anywhere new really.

What makes you happy? Learning new things. Sailing to and in new places. Sailing in general. Finishing editing a project, watching a good movie at home and interesting late night conversations. Except late night has a limit now, say before 10?

JUSTIN

Designer / Website Manager 

When did you join Plaine Products? From the beginning, when I recieved a phone call from Ali & Lindsey. 

What’s your favorite Plaine Product? The Beauty Oil has been crucial to keeping my beard/scruff super soft. I’ve been trying to convince everyone to rename it “Manly Face Softening Agent” but nobody will listen to me.

What’s your favorite sustainability product outside of Plaine Products? Bites toothpaste. Zero plastic, comes in a refillable glass jar. It’s shocking how many plastic toothpaste tubes are out there.

What’s your favorite vacation spot? I’m still trying to find it! Right now, I’d say backpacking along Notellum River in Oregon.

What makes you happy? Making things! Getting lost in the flow of the creative moment. Cooking, reading and some tea in the morning. Trying to invent a better form of dancing.
