Plaine Products is the newest company to take aim at disrupting the traditional life cycle of product packaging. The beauty and bath brand was founded in 2017 with the mission of providing a product that was good for humans in packaging that was good for the environment. Plaine has become the go-to brand for those in the zero-waste community, as the company’s take-back program allows customers to refill their product without wasting the sturdy, reusable aluminum bottle.
The zero-waste movement has found success among college students who want to care for the environment while also using products in the most cost efficient ways. One of these zero-wasters is biology junior, Hannah Kleppe, who discovered Plaine while transitioning into a more sustainable lifestyle last year. The company has become a staple in her hygiene routine and she couldn’t be happier about it, knowing she’s doing her part every time she lathers up.
