THE PROBLEM WITH PLASTICS:

By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish by weight. Plastics may be a bigger threat to the planet than global warming!

WHY IS PLASTIC A GLOBAL THREAT?

  • Only 9% of plastics are recycled
  • 40% of the ocean's surface is covered with plastics
  • There are 5 giant garbage patches in the ocean, the largest of which is twice the size of Texas
  • Despite this, 70% of the plastic in the ocean is on the seabed

Plastics never go away, sun exposure and wave action break plastic into microplastics and ultimately into toxic chemicals.

After 5 years of searching for an eco-friendly alternative to plastic packaging, we have solved the problem and we are stoked!

THE ANSWER IS... ALUMINUM TUBES

Aluminum Tubes

ALUMINUM TUBES ARE THE ANSWER BECAUSE:

  • They don’t break down into microparticles
  • They are non-toxic to humans and the environment
  • In excess of 90% of aluminum is recycled vs 9% for plastic
  • No sacrifice on convenience and affordability!
  • They are designed to dent which we think is kind of retro and cool
