The secret to reducing plastic waste is being prepared
It’s ironic that our spirit of generosity during the holidays is responsible for creating an extra 25 million tons of trash between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day. With so many parties, presents, packages, and travel plans, the holidays can be one of the toughest times of year to avoid single-use plastic. The secret to success is being prepared with reusable alternatives. You can help us transform Black Friday into Blue Friday by choosing to make waves, not waste, and shop sustainably this holiday season. That’s why we’re giving you early access to all of our holiday bundles. Each holiday bundle includes reusable alternatives that can help you avoid the most common types of single-use plastic — no matter how spontaneous your celebrations may be.
Did you know we produce around 25% more trash during the holidays than any other time of year?
We’re encouraging everyone to make waves, not waste this holiday season. Before you shop, think about how you can give meaningful gifts without making additional waste. For instance, many types of ribbon are made from plastic-based fabrics. If every family reused just two feet of holiday ribbon, we’d save about 38,000 miles of ribbon — enough to tie a bow around the entire planet. And if you’re a devout Black Friday shopper, you can avoid single-use plastic by bringing a reusable bag to carry all your goodies and a nice reusable mug of coffee to keep you awake in those long lines.
