Join us for #plasticfreejuly
Plastic bottles, bags, to-go containers, and many other products designed for one time use last forever. These plastics break “up” instead of down, becoming a permanent pollutant. With a shockingly low rate of recycling (only 9%!), most are sent to a landfill where they remain, while more is littered, and even more end up in the ocean. Scientists predict that by 2050, there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish. Every bit of plastic ever made still exists, and in the first 10 years of this, the 21st century, produced more plastic than the entirety of the 20th century.
Join the #plasticfreeJULY initiative, help us reduce our collective eco-footprint, and save the ocean!
Carry a stainless steel travel mug, or water bottle at all times.
Our Pura Kiki reusable bottles are the ONLY 100% plastic free bottles, and the only ones to be Nontoxic Certified by Madesafe. With interchangeable lids, any bottle can evolve to meet the needs of every member of your family.
Carry your own containers for take out food and leftovers.
It may feel like you’re being a pain, but providing your own containers for take-out places to use will dramatically reduce your personal eco-footprint. Check out our line of Eco Lunchboxes, which we use for everything from food-prep, to actual lunchboxes. They are the ultimate multi-purpose plastic-free containers, and perfect take away boxes!
If you’re like me, you need your daily coffee (or tea) fix. Ditching the waste is incredibly easy in this front, as many coffee shops provide a discount to customers who bring their own cup. Kafe in the Box is a stylish reusable coffee cup, with two different sizes, and a removable sleeve, it’s a sophisticated reusable cup option! Don’t fret if you’ve forgotten your cup at home, simply asking for “no lid” will decrease the amount of plastic you’re using.
Carry reusable straws + utensils!
You can take your stainless steel cutlery from home, or you can purchase some light-weight bamboo products for those special occasions when you eat out, to avoid the plastic products you would ordinarily receive. Try our BAMBU brand Straws, eating utensils, and bowls!
Plastic pollution is one of the biggest environmental challenges of our era, though it is not a lost cause. We can ALL be a part of the solution.
