Plastic Free July 2022: Why It Matters for Companies to Lead this Change

CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA --What does it take to achieve a plastic-free world?
MORGANTON, N.C. - July 26, 2022 - PRLog -- For years now, individuals and nonprofit organizations have been fighting to curb the inevitable increase of plastic waste in landfills and oceans, but have achieved little so far. The reason? Consumers and private citizens can't do it alone. The world needs companies to step up and lead the revolution.

According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (, a total of 14.5 million tons of plastics were created by the containers and packaging industry in 2018. These come in the form of plastic bags, sacks, wraps, polyethylene terephthalate (PET) bottles and jars, and high-density polyethylene (HDPE) natural bottles, among many others. One can only expect that these numbers have grown significantly since then–especially with the pandemic forcing most to have products delivered to their homes instead of buying them themselves (an option that, in the past, has given people the option to use reusable bags to carry their goods).

Certified B Company, Eco Lips (, is a company that understands the world's plastic problem all too well, and one that is dedicated to finding innovative solutions to counter. As the creator of the original organic lip balm, Eco Lips believes in the power of natural, organic ingredients over products that are petroleum-based or loaded with chemicals like other brands. This, of course, extends to their packaging.

In 2021, Eco Lips introduced the world to Plant Pod®, its exclusive plant-based, 100% plastic-free packaging that functions exactly like a plastic lip balm tube. As the first of its kind, Plant Pod® made headlines when Eco Lips launched it. Today, in celebration of Plastic Free July, the brand calls on other companies to follow their footsteps and look for new ways to cut out plastic usage.
