One Planet Zero is a team of young, like-minded people, that care about the environment and would like to help the fight against plastic pollution. If we continue going down this road, our beautiful blue planet is not going to last long. Plastic pollution is one of the biggest problems of our time and we need to start acting now.
We are based in EU and we are working with manufacturers all around the globe, to provide the highest quality sustainable products, that will help you get started with your zero waste and plastic free journey.
We believe many people want to change their lifestyle, to be more eco-friendly, but a lot of times find it too difficult, because everywhere we go, all the shops and supermarkets are just trying to sell us products made of plastic, or products packed in single-use plastic. In the end they just give up. We want to make it easier for people to find plastic-free products made of sustainable materials and other solutions, to inspire them to start making more responsible choices in their life.
WHAT INSPIRED US
Worrying images and news about hundreds of millions of marine animals dying each year from plastic pollution, was one of the main reasons for this project. In most cases, plastic pollution could be prevented with very simple actions, such as refusing a disposable straw at a restaurant, or refusing a single-use plastic bag at a grocery shop and using your own reusable shopping bag. It may not seem like these two simple acts could do a big difference, but if one person refused a plastic shopping bag each time they went shopping, we could spare the planet of around 300 disposable plastic bags per year. Now imagine the difference, if more people did this.
THERE IS NO PLAN(ET) B
The future is in our hands. Do we really want to leave this to our successors? If we continue down this road, by 2050 there will be more plastic in our oceans than fish.
ZERO WASTE IS EASY
While most people might think getting used to zero waste lifestyle is overwhelming, we want to show you, that's actually not true at all. It does require a bit of planning at first, but once you get used to it, it's so easy and cheaper too. One Planet Zero is more than just an online store with eco-friendly products. We also want to give people more information on how to get started with zero waste lifestyle and show them, that it's actually really easy to follow the "Refuse, Reduce, Reuse, Recycle" concept. :)
