Mission + Impact
Join us on our mission to #Stopplastic and help our Mother Earth. Change begins with you + ME.
We think plastic sucks, especially the single-use stuff. There are so many items we need and use on a regular basis that just don't NEED to be made from plastic or packaged in plastic.
And we can't do it alone. We need more people to get on board with making simple, daily swaps to reduce their overall impact on our one and only Mother Earth. Small individual actions when multiplied by millions can have a BIG impact. Let's go BIG.
We started with a straw, and you can too. Or start with a bamboo toothbrush. Or start with using up what you already have first. The key is to start, and we hope to be there to help you along the way.
We never intended to just sell stuff. We carefully have curated our store and products to allow more people to obtain the items they need and use everyday already, with a few additional things that might make our lives easier on our journey to a more sustainable lifestyle. Because we want to not only make plastic-free products more accessible, but actually make a difference, we donate a portion of our proceeds every month to organizations that put our Mother Earth first.
When you purchase a product from Me Mother Earth, you are voting with your purchase dollars for a world you want to live in. Not all the nonprofits we donate to like to be "linked" with a brand, so instead of name dropping non-profits, we have listed the areas in which our donations go to:
- Ocean + Animal conservation
- Beach + Ocean cleanups
- Plastic pollution education + Advocacy
- Mangrove planting + Coral reef restoration
- Rainforest restoration + Tree planting + Soil carbon sequestration
Many of these programs empower local communities, absorb carbon emissions, clean up plastic from our planet, and promote a healthy livelihood for all living beings.
Are you a small independent non-profit that's helping the planet or cleaning up our oceans? Shoot us an email: firstname.lastname@example.org. We love to support grassroots efforts in any way that we can.
