If you take a walk along any beach in the world you will find plastic amongst the sand or stones. This is because 10% of all plastic trash ends up in the sea. It was this terrible plastic tide that inspired us to do something to help reduce the use of plastic and GOOD2GO was born.
Plastic pollution is a huge, and growing, problem. There are an estimated 46,000 pieces in every square mile of ocean. Every year plastic kills more than 100,000 marine mammals like seals, sea lions, dolphins and whales, and a million sea birds like the Laysan Albatross (http://www.midwayfilm.com/). Plastic particles attract toxins and enter the food chain and finally, us. Babies are now born with chemicals in their bodies that are only used in the manufacture of plastic. The good news is that we have a solution.
We believe it’s insane to make products like party plates and cups that will be used only once from plastic, a material that lasts for centuries and can’t be recycled. All GOOD2GO products are non-toxic, made from plants and return to nature within just a few months of being thrown away. We’ve been working together for four years bringing planet-friendly disposables to business customers and consumers in the Caribbean, where the beaches are impacted every day. We’ve organized beach clean ups and seen hundreds of people turn out early in the morning to remove many tons of plastic trash washed in from the sea. Every ton of GOOD2GO products used replaces a ton of plastic and, therefore, a ton of plastic trash.
We’ve noticed that people often get very serious when it comes to environmental protection but we’re fun kind of people and we think doing good things for the planet should be fun too. Everybody likes to throw a party but have you ever noticed just how much plastic waste is generated at even a small gathering? We did and so we developed a range of planet-friendly GOOD2GO 'Party Time' packs and an innovative marketing plan to get them into every home in America.
You have the unique opportunity to be the first in your neighborhood to throw a party using a GOOD2GO ‘Party Time’ pack for just $25. We have a wide range of options to suit all occasions. Whether you’re planning a kid’s party, a tailgate party or a family get together, there’s a GOOD2GO ‘Party Time’ pack designed especially for you. Every pack contains printed cups, plates, bowls, knives, forks and spoons that are all made from plants and all 100% compostable. We’ll also throw in some party favors and biodegradable trash bags, and we’ll even ship your pack for FREE if you live in the mainland USA. Everyone who funds our IndieGoGo campaign will also receive a 10% discount voucher, even if you only fund $1.
Join us and fund our IndieGoGo campaign (http://igg.me/at/itspartytime) but don't delay, our campaign ends on May 31st. With your help we can reduce plastic pollution and Party with the Planet.
