Making Waves Against Plastic Pollution
At Bee’s Wrap we are on a mission to cover the world in pollinators not plastic. That’s why we created the number one Bee’s Wax wrap to help you cut down on plastic in the kitchen and keep food fresher longer. Just one pack of Bee’s Wrap can save 1,677 sq. feet of plastic from entering our oceans and landfills each year. Today, we are a global hive of eco-conscious, outdoor enthusiasts, foodies, and more who have made a big impact in ditching disposables. And we are not done yet! That is why we are partnering up with Plastic Tides, a nonprofit organization working to inspire and catalyze action toward a plastic free future.
With the launch of our new Snack & Sandwich bags and our Under the Sea Pattern we’ve teamed up with one percent for the planet to donate 1% of all Under the Sea Snack and Sandwich bag sales to Plastic Tides. That means 1% of each Under the Sea Snack & sandwich bag purchased will go directly to support Plastic Tides work to keep our planet plastic free.
A Plastic Free Future
Plastic Tides’ is on a mission to inspire and catalyze action toward a plastic-free future through adventure, education, and youth empowerment. Their global team works to create and implement community-centric programs that foster: nature-based experiential learning for youth; access to environmental education for populations underserved, underrepresented, and critically affected by the world’s plastic pollution and climate crises; and sustainable, circular economies rooted in local community structures. Plastic Tides’ Global Youth Mentor (GYM) Program gives motivated students the opportunity to become Youth Leaders and provides them with the tools and support to reduce plastic pollution in their communities. Youth Leaders, aged 12-18, are paired with GYM Mentors – scientists, environmental experts, and volunteers from diverse backgrounds – and are guided through change-based projects. GYM’s educational curriculum helps Youth Leaders to identify and implement a solution for a plastic waste problem in their specific community; collect quantifiable data on the removal and prevention of that waste; prompt community-centric behavioral change through education campaigns and volunteer events; petition local government and industry for better plastic management practices, and share their project findings through community outreach. This program is accessible to any motivated student and mentor who wants to take action, make an impact, and inspire the next generation to take action.
