028: Tackling Waste in the Health and Beauty industry with Plaine Products’ Lindsey McCoy

After 10 years working on environmental education in the Bahamas, an archipelago full of single-use plastic, Lindsey McCoy and her sister Alison co-founded Plaine Products, a company that offers health and beauty products in aluminum bottles that can be returned, refilled and reused. Today we talk about the importance of perseverance and progress over perfection when it comes to an earth-conscious mindset.

I think a lot of people worry that the efforts they make are not good enough or far enough and that keeps them from making any effort at all. I truly believe that we have to celebrate each time we don’t pick up a plastic water bottle or we do compost or we do recycle. Those are all positive good steps that should lead to more good steps. Not beating up ourselves because we don’t. Tweet This!
