Lindsey McCoy has a master’s degree in nonprofit management and spent the last 10 years working on environmental education in the Bahamas, islands full of single-use plastic
She and her sister, Allison Webster, co-founded a company, Plaine Products, that offers shampoo, conditioner and body wash in aluminum bottles that can be returned, refilled and reused.
In this interview, Lindsey explains how plastic affects all of us. It never disappears, just breaks down into smaller and smaller particles. Much of the plastic ends up in the ocean where fish are ingesting it and so do we by eating fish.
Lindsey describes her experience in the Bahamas where many beaches show evidence of how quickly single use plastic can become a problem.
She also gives us insights in the trials and tribulations of starting a company which does good for the planet and the product, the shampoo, and soap, are good for the body as well.
