A bit about us
Hi, we're Shorebox
And we want to help you reduce the amount of plastic in your life.
If you travelled back in time and told our great grandpa Joe that one day we’d be wrapping bananas in plastic, he’d have thought you were crazy. If you told him one day there’d be a plastic island in the ocean twice the size of Texas, he’d have choked on his mashed potatoes.
Today, there’s a plastic version of nearly everything, and it’s having a devastating effect on our environment.
There are more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic in the ocean. They break down into toxic little pieces which marine animals mistake for food. As a result, millions of animals die each year, including seabirds, whales, turtles, and dolphins.
Plastic is polluting natural habitats, the air, and water supplies. It’s even entered our food chain. And it’s not going away anytime soon — unless we all do our bit.
That’s why we’ve made zero-waste our mission.
We believe that by receiving 4 zero-waste items each month, you can make small changes to your lifestyle that add up to make a big difference.
As for us, Blue Planet II gave us the kick we needed to give our lives a plastic detox. We now want to share what we’ve learned, and help others do the same.
So whether you’re a subscriber, blog reader or just passing by, thank you for thinking about your plastic footprint. Together, we can turn off the plastic tap!
