It all started with Blue Planet 2 

We’ve always loved a David Attenborough documentary, but we had no idea Blue Planet 2 would change our lives. It may sound corny, but it’s true! We were horrified to see the effects of plastic on marine life.

It’s overwhelming to think that…

  • the average person living in North America or Western Europe consumes 100 kilograms of plastic annually (source: Worldwatch). 
  • the equivalent of a lorry-load of plastic enters our oceans every minute (source: Greenpeace).
  • there are now at least 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic distributed across the ocean (source: National Geographic).
  • millions of marine animals, including seabirds, whales, turtles, seals, and dolphins die as a result of our plastic pollution (source: Science Direct).

Shorebox: a plastic-free subscription box & shop

As consumers, we need to be the ones to make change. But cutting down on single-use plastic can feel overwhelming, as it’s everywhere! So we created ‘Shorebox’ - a subscription box that introduces you to plastic-free products. Subscribers receive four zero-waste items each month, including toiletries, kitchen and cleaning, travel, treats and more.

The environment is at the heart of everything we do

  • Zero-waste: every product, including its packaging, is either biodegradable or recyclable.
  • Cruelty-free: we never include a product from a brand which conducts animal testing.
  • Vegan-friendly: every product is vegan friendly, or there’ll be a vegan alternative. 
  • Carbon-neutral delivery: we plant trees to offset delivery emissions.
