We have a plastic problem
Our use of plastic disposables is wreaking havoc on our eco-system, polluting our water, killing wildlife and affecting our food supply. Recycling isn’t effective enough (app 5% is actually recycled), and an estimate 22 million tons of plastic enters the oceans every year. It is estimated that by 2050, there will be more plastic than fish in the ocean. In the U.S., we throw away more than 60 million coffee cups and lids in the landfill every day. If we think globally and act locally, we can change this.
Plastic is more expensive than it seems
It may seem cheap, but there are hidden costs - toxicity to our health and to our planet. We encourage you not to use disposables whenever possible, but when you do, using (and composting) compostable products made from plants instead of petroleum is a far better solution. And far cheaper in the long run. By shifting our behavior just a little bit, we can have a much lighter footprint and leave a better world for those who follow.
Naeco | ocean, reversed
We don’t just claim to be sustainable. It’s part of our ethos. We are partnering with organizations that are on a similar mission, too. If you are involved in an organization that shares this mission, or are passionate about helping to change the world we live in, please get in touch - we'd love to hear from you.
