We're here to make sustainability a part of our everyday routine through reuse. From the home, to the cafe, to your workplace - reuse should be a part of every context.
Less Plastic's mission is not about removing plastic from our lives, but using less of it. When plastic is used in a way that is reusable, it is more sustainable. Eliminating plastic totally from our lives is not a practical goal, so the goal is to use it wisely.
We work together with Australian sustainable brands KeepCup, SUSTOMi and Champ.Co to provide products and advice on forming good reuse habits.
We have partnered with KeepCup to collaborate on a shared mission: raising awareness in Japan about the issue of excessive plastic consumption.
KeepCup, hailing from the coffee capital of Australia, Melbourne, has solidified its position as a globally renowned brand for reusable cups, with an impressive track record of selling over 10 million cups worldwide. This iconic brand has earned its place as a household name in the coffee industry across Australia, Europe, and America.
Our partnership now enables us to offer KeepCup products to some of Japan's finest cafes. Additionally, we're supplying businesses and companies with KeepCups, facilitating their use among employees in the workplace. Together, we aim to make a meaningful impact in reducing plastic waste in Japan!
SUSTOMi is the solution for your single use plastic woes. Offering a range of lifestyle, storage and organisation products, SUSTOMi seamlessly blends sustainability & style.
Born out of the small island of Tasmania in Australia, Bronwyn Kidd started SUSTOMi out of her passion of helping people live a happier, healthier organised life whilst also protecting the environment.
