Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) commented on Redesigned zero waste local event

Hey all,
My name is Meghann and I also work for the Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN)  I put together a few zero waste events at my college campus in the United States. One difficulty I have found with hosting zero waste events is finding enough volunteers to stand behind the waste stations when you have events that are happening continually such as every weekend. I was wondering if you had any creative ideas with recruiting volunteers, especially as you start to host more and more zero waste events?


Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) commented on Cutting the carbon footprint on Coconut Water with CocoTaps!

This is a very unique contribution! I love fresh coconut water and would definitely purchase one of these if I lived in an area with coconuts. I'm curious about the afterlife of the coconut. When the user is finished, do they remove the tap and cap and use it over or do they just throw it away? If they are not encouraged to reuse it, these caps seem to just continue contributing to the problem unfortunately.


Post-Landfill Action Network (PLAN) commented on Plaine Products

Plaine Products , this is such an awesome idea! I love how easy you make it to return-ship the bottles. Do you ship around the country?

I work for PLAN, a non-profit which supports student-led zero waste initiatives on college campuses, and I'd love to talk about ways that we could work with the Plaine team to offer this product as a solution to campuses. Feel free to hit us up at if you want to talk :)
