MIAMI – No matter where we go, the things we buy, eat and use more often than not come packaged in plastic.
And now our planet is drowning in it.
Every minute the equivalent of a garbage truck full of plastic is being dumped into the world’s oceans, and global plastic production is expected to triple in the next 30 years.
Kiosks stocked with cleaning refills can help South Florida cut down on plastic use
The global population has become reliant on the convenience single use plastic. We know it’s not sustainable we are trying to make a difference.
North Bay Village is taking steps to minimize pollution into Biscayne Bay.
It’s great to see the city of North Bay Village in Miami Dade County implement the Ecopod refill system for its residence. It’s the first city nationwide to do so. They are proactive in the elimination of single use plastic and we hope other cities follow suit. It would be great if all cities would bypass the retailers that are damaging the environment by implementing the Ecopod in their city halls and public places.
We’ve been working hard to ramp up production and expand, while getting the word out to product manufacturers about the potential of refill. Now, as we gain speed, we are seeing a great response to the idea of ditching single-use plastic for a refill-based model.
We’re excited to announce that we have been featured on CNN this week. The article highlights Ecopod’s role in creating a circular economy where waste is designed out of the equation. Our refill technology is poised to pave the way for manufacturers around the world that are looking to reduce single-use plastic packaging.
