Single-use Plastic Is Destroying Out Planet. If we do address the issue of the single-use plastic explosion by the year 2050, our oceans will have more plastic in them than trash. Every step of the plastic life cycle is bad for our earth. Plastics are made from oil which has to be drilled from the earth and is dangerous to ship to a refinery. Once they refinery separates it, it forms plastic pellets that are once again shipped to another factory which turns the pellets into the product (bottle, cup, cutlery etc). The product is then shipped to a warehouse for distribution. Once the plastic product finally reaches its destination, it is used one time and then there is a 90%+ chance that it will not be recycled. Every piece of plastic that was ever created (1930's) still exists on earth today, as it takes over 400 years to decompose.
Our mission is to provide today's society with the tools they need to end our reliance on single-use plastic. We believe that by providing quality, convenient products, owners can easily integrate reUzi into their daily lives. The more people that carry these products will translate to less plastic being produced, and in turn act as a gentle reminder to our peers that we all need to do our part.
Each purchase helps our planet as we take 11% of profits and put them towards non-profits that are working to protect our environment.
