Shedd Aquarium: Plastic Footprint Audit
Planet+Purpose Solutions™ supported Shedd Aquarium's goal to divert 90% of its waste from landfill by conducting a large-scale operations and supply chain single-use plastic audit followed by recommendations and implementation of cost-effective, sustainable alternatives and solutions. PPS also worked with Shedd to provide support to single-use plastic policy efforts in the region and also helped to design a local business engagement initiative to reduce single-use plastic food service ware.
Shedd is one of the world's most respected aquariums with research, rescue and rehabilitation facilities. This landmark cultural institution in Chicago welcomes 2 million guests a year.
Nuun: Packaging Shift
Planet+Purpose Solutions™ works with Nuun, a leading clean-ingredient sports drink supplement brand, to identify more sustainable packaging options and transition its packaging for a new product line to 97% post-consumer recycled content. In addition, our team developed waste guidelines for events and helped Nuun eliminate single-use sample cups at its Outdoor Retailer booth.
Innersense Organic Beauty: Packaging Shift
Planet+Purpose Solutions worked with Innersense Organic Beauty – a clean beauty brand founded on a commitment to be a business force for good - to develop and launch a comprehensive sustainability plan that included a packaging stewardship transition plan, a B Impact Assessment and transition to full B Corp Certification, and alignment of its philanthropic program with 1% for the Planet. As a result, over 90% of the brand’s plastic packaging has been converted to post-consumer recycled plastic and a refillable model has been launched. Innersense also collected five years of its historical plastic output and offset its 2020 plastic footprint by 150% through partnerships with RePurpose Global and Plastic Bank. Innersense Organic Beauty has won awards, industry praise, and customer loyalty through its commitment to “Be Well, Be Beautiful, and Be Conscious.”
