Why IMPLASTICFREE?

With an estimated over five trillion pieces of plastic in the world’s oceans, and the fact that by 2,050 there will be more plastic than fish in the sea, IMPLASTICFREE was born to offer solutions to people who are refusing single-use plastics.
 
Let’s be honest, we’re flooded by plastic products, they are literally everywhere as plastic is so cheap to produce. We are drowning in plastic and intoxicating the ocean wildlife and ultimately ourselves.
 
Many people would like to help and avoid plastic but it’s very hard to find such products. Our aim to to make plastic-free living more readily accessible and affordable.
 
Simply, there are two ways how each one of us can contribute to ending the ocean plastic pollution plague:
 
  1. REDUCE OUR DEPENDENCE FROM PLASTIC AND THEREFORE ITS DEMAND ON THE MARKETS. WE WANT TO CONTRIBUTE TO ‘CLOSING THE TAP’.
  2. CLEAN THE OCEANS FROM THE ENVIRONMENTAL DISASTER HUMAN BEINGS HAVE CREATED.
With IMPLASTICFREE we are targeting both and want to be part of the solution in both areas:
 
  1. WE’LL OFFER HIGH QUALITY REUSABLES
  2. WE’LL GIVE 5% OF OUR NET PROFITS TO NON-FOR PROFIT ORGANISATIONS LIKE THE OCEAN CLEAN UP WHOSE MISSION IS TO RID THE WORLD’S OCEAN OF PLASTIC.
We don’t want to see any more turtles mistaking plastic bags for jellyfish, we don’t want to see another video of a suffering turtle with a plastic straw stuck in its nostrils, we don’t want to see any creature entangled in plastic nets & six pack rings, we don’t want to see whales, albatrosses and other marine wildlife dying after ingesting huge amounts of plastic.
 
And ultimately, we don’t want to see humans getting sick from plastic. Researchers have already found microplastics in the fish and seafood we eat. Further studies are being conducted on the potential harmful effects that could prove plastics carcinogenic or promote endocrine disruption especially in very young children. This is mainly due to the toxic chemical additives used during plastic production, like bisphenol A (BPA) and Phthalates among others, which have been identified through studies in the human population.
 
Can you imagine a world with less dependence from plastic?
 
We can!
 
And we’ll fight for it… for the future of our children!
