Black-Owned Natural Deodorant Brand Using Ocean Waste Plastic Product Packaging

Each year, between eight and 10 million tons of plastic gets dumped into the oceans. Sadly, if things don’t change, by 2050 our seas will contain more of the synthetic material than fish, according to a 2015 study published by World Economic Forum and the Ellen MacArthur Foundation.

One way to beat back this tidal wave is by repurposing ocean plastic into new products (think: sneakers or leggings) or packaging. The latter route is the one Sarah Ribner opted to take recently in an effort to make her personal care brand, Piperwai, more sustainable.
