What was the motivation behind your project? What did you want to change in the world?

For 10 years I lived in The Bahamas doing environment education work. While I loved living there, it wasn’t all rum drinks on the beach. On a small island, there’s no first world infrastructure to insulate you from the piles of plastic we are creating. You see plastic bags, bottles and flip flops on the beaches, in the water, spilling out of the landfills, along the side of the road. There’s even a place so full of plastic it's called Junk Beach. I can send you a picture. The message that plastic lasts forever, no matter how long we use it, is much more obvious living there than it is here.

I wanted to start using less plastic in my life. I started taking action: carrying a reusable water bottle, reusable grocery bags, skipping the straw at restaurants and bars. I looked for other ways to use less plastic. But I couldn’t figure out how to get those plastic bottles out of my shower. I’m not crafty enough to make my own shampoo safely and shampoo bars didn’t work for me, I needed another option.

As we contemplated a move back to the States, I realized that I might be able to solve my own problem. Even better, I might be able to help other people use less plastic in their lives. I pulled in my sister, Alison Webster, who has a design degree and strong opinions about the quality of her products. Together we spent two years finding the right containers and products. We launched in February 2017.

Who is the team behind your project?

My sister and I founded Plaine Products together.

What one thing about your project would most surprise us?

Neither of us has a background in business! Mine is in nonprofit and my sister (and co-founder) was an interior designer.

Is there anything else that you would like to share with us about your project?

Although we didn’t start out to be a natural products company, I’ve become a huge advocate of keeping harmful chemicals out of the products we put on and in our bodies. I had no idea there were so many chemicals in most mainstream products until I started doing research.
