While we like to think that recycling simply reverses the plastic products we are using in our everyday lives, sadly it is not. I recently listened to an interview of trash enthusiast Lindsey Engh by Jessica Yellin. It was eye-opening. To hear the interview from start to finish checkout @jessicayellin IGTV Q & A with Linsey Engh. Some of the takeaways I learned was that a LOT of plastic is not getting recycled. We have to rethink recycling completely. Instead of thinking “it’s plastic, I’ll recycle it”, we need to ask “is this plastic able to be recycled?” For most plastics, the answer is NO. The heavy 5-gal buckets with thick plastic will have a chance at becoming a kids’ toy or another bottle one day, but the average thinner plastics end up in our landfills or worse, our oceans. The best way to mitigate this is to avoid plastics whenever possible. This was a driving force for me switching to Plaine Products. Ashlee Piper, author of “Give a Sh*t, Do Good, Live Better, Save the Planet“, posted her haircare products on IG and I was immediately intrigued by the metal bottles. Quickly, I made the swtich. I have been using Plaine Products since early 2019. The system is simple- the products are delivered with provided return postage, once you finish your product, you place it in the same box with the new label and off it goes to be cleaned and reused.
All products are:
- Free of sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicone, and palm oil
- Blended with whole essential oils (instead of synthetic fragrance)
- Vegan and non GMO ingredients
- Designed to biodegrade
- Baby safe and hypoallergenic
- Cruelty Free, Leaping Bunny certified
- Free of single-use plastic
I must say, my hair shines! The softness and shine I see in my hair is amazing! The Rosemay, Mint, Vanilla fragrance is the one I use and I love it, but to be fair I haven’t tried their others. Why? Because I love this scent so much! Plaine products also offers body wash, hand sanitizer, lotions, etc. In my efforts to be eco-friendly, I will be using all of my other soaps and lotions before buying new. But once I have, I am definitely modifying my subscriptions!
Raising Vegan Tip- Set up an automatic delivery subscription for your favorite products. You’ll receive a reminder email to make adjustments as needed. We tend to run out of shampoo before conditioner, so I have setup two different subscriptions on two different timelines so I don’t end up with more product than necessary.
