1% for the Planet

This company partners with 1% for the Planet, a nonprofit organization that helps promote environmental stewardship. Members commit to donating at least 1% of their sales to the program, which helps connect them to high-impact environmental nonprofits across the globe.

B Corp

The B Lab is a third-party, non-profit organization that certifies companies as socially and environmentally responsible. B Corps are businesses that go above and beyond traditional business models and aim to create positive change in the world through their practices. These companies must meet rigorous transparency and accountablity standards, while doing what is best for people and the environment.

Plant Based Resin

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

Recycled Nylon

Recycled nylon salvages post-industrial and post-consumer nylon scraps in order to create new items. The scraps are cleaned, sorted, stripped down, and separated into fibers before being transformed into completely new products. This process avoids the energy and resource extraction required to produce virgin fibers, and takes advantage of the efforts used to create the item initially. Recycling nylon provides a second life for materials which might otherwise end up polluting the ocean or buried in a landfill. Recycled nylon can be made from salvaged fishing nets as well as carpet and scraps from clothing production.

Recycled Content

Recycling is the process of taking an otherwise-discarded item or material and cleaning, sorting, and breaking it down into its basic form (such as fibers or pellets). This material is then used to produce new items. Recycling keeps useful materials from being discarded in landfills, prevents resource extraction due to the creation of new materials, and provides a new life for used items. Recycling can utilize both pre-consumer waste (materials left over from production) or post-consumer materials (used clothing, empty water bottles, etc). This product is made from recycled content.

About the Company

Bureo

Bureo was founded by three friends who had a passion for surfing, adventure and the environment. Troubled by all of the oceanic pollution that they saw during their travels, especially from discarded fishing nets, they decided that they were going to make a difference. Inspired by Chile’s coast and culture, they decided to set up their recycling program Net Positiva on its coast and work with locals to find a way to turn this pollution into something positive. So far, they have succeeded in recycling 202,320 square feet of fishing nets, but they aren’t even close to being finished with their mission. Meaning “waves” in Chilean, Bureo is an ode to both Chile’s welcoming community and the company’s overall mission. Just as a wave starts small, but grows with time and energy to become a great force of change, Bureo plans to do the same.
