Benefits

  • When the bottles need to be retired aluminum experiences no quality loss, so they can be easily and completely recycled again and again. Plastic is downgraded when it is recycled so it can only be reused once or twice before going to the landfill.

Challenges

  • Plaine Products uses the US Postal Service to minimize the shipping carbon footprint. No additional trips into neighborhoods are required. They also partner with local retailers for refill options.

Making a difference

In 2019, Plaine Products surpassed their goal of preventing 6 kg of C02 per kg of plastic from being emitted by selling 50K bottles. By the end of the year they sold 69,445 bottles – and in 2020 hope to reach the 100K mark.
