Buy one, get one tree. Plastic Freedom plants one tree for every order
Plastic Freedom, the online shop that champions plastic-free living, has announced that it planted an astonishing 2,219 trees this June in the Atlantic Forest, Brazil. Plastic Freedom has teamed up with the initiative, One Tree Planted, ensuring that every order placed on plasticfreedom.com leads to a newly planted tree. In May, they successfully planted 1,937 trees in California.
Here is a bit more information on Plastic Freedom and how founder, Beth Noy started it in 2017:
“When I started to notice how much plastic was used in every day life I really started to hate that I was ‘forced’ into buying it. I guess it was at this moment that Plastic Freedom began, not that I even knew it then. It took me a couple of weeks really evaluating what plastic products I was buying so that I could start to eliminate it once and for all!
It was a cold weekend in March 2017 that I made my first plastic free choice to never ever buy a plastic bottle again! Making that first step really kick started my plastic free journey and I couldn’t be happier with my life right now!
Purchasing plastic free food means everything is fresh, healthy and so much cheaper (contrary to what people think!) and buying plastic free products has really changed my outlook on waste. How much had I been spending on stuff that didn’t really last that long? How much plastic trash was being thrown/recycled which lasts longer than I even bear to think about?
I just knew I had to share my journey in hope that even one person would see it and want to make a change too. This is where the magic really began for me… seeing SO many people actually listen, reach out to me, take notice the plastic problem and start to make changes to cut out plastic from their lives blew me away!
It dawned on me that if I could give people alternatives to products they already buy, that were made by people with the same belief, a good price and produce zero plastic waste then just think about how much plastic would never be bought again!”
