Today we are bursting at the seams with happiness. That’s because Sinplástico has now reached the 7 year mark offering you plastic-free options and alternatives for a life free from this exact material.
We can’t quite believe that so long has passed since that day, back in 2014, when Marion and Javier, our co-founders, decided to jump in the deep end and create the first ever zero waste e-store in Spain.
Dreaming of avoiding plastic at every turn, with durable, truly eco-friendly, ethically made alternatives, that are predominantly made right here in Spain or within Europe.
Well here we are, 7 years down the track.
This is all that has happened to us along the way:
- We have grown: we have moved on from the two of us doing everything to forming a small social cooperative of 8 people and various professional collaborators.
- We have grown our families: no more and no less than 6 babies have been born to the Sinplástico team since 2014.
- We have evolved as people and as a team: we have surprised each other, shared happy moments and scary ones along the way, and have come down to earth with a thump a few times too.
- We’ve managed to avoid an enormous amount of plastic: in this post from a couple of years ago we made an estimation of just how much.
- We’ve been bold: we stood up and said NO to consumerism, we told the truth about so called eco-friendly products, we turned traditional annual sales into opportunities to support activist not-for-profit organisations.
- We’ve raised awareness: we’ve written a book, we’ve appeared in the media and in documentaries and we’ve created our own online course to help you to reduce your plastic use.
- We have experienced it all: the period in which people looked at us like we were from outer space when we explained that we follow a plastic-free lifestyle, the boom when plastic-free and zero waste awareness sky-rocketed in 2017, and now with the global pandemic one of our most difficult times.
However, above all:
- We have learned the meaning of the word COMMUNITY: thanks to all those people who, like you, read what we write, support us and share our ideas about how to make a world with less plastic a reality.
None of this would be possible without you
This is why we would like to thank you personally, the one who is reading this.
Because nothing we have experienced over the last 7 years would have happened without your support.
At the end of the day, we are still a small social cooperative trying to reduce the negative impact of plastic on our environment, without investing loads of money in advertising, without investors or shareholders behind us, but by putting ethics before profits.
So, thank you, from the very bottom of our hearts…
…for taking part and trusting in this project to achieve a world with less plastic.
