Who We Are
Preserve, a certified B Corporation, is the leading maker of performance driven and stylish 100% recycled household products. Preserve is powered by the recycling efforts of individuals and companies collecting #5 plastic—such as yogurt cups and other common household containers—via Preserve’s Gimme 5 program. The Gimme 5 program collects and transforms #5 plastics into new Preserve products. All recycling and manufacturing is done in the USA.
The Preserve Mission
Our mission is to help reduce the harm caused by the industrial age by demonstrating that consumer products can be both fabulous and lighter on the earth.
The Preserve Mission: Practices
Preserve aims to develop improved recycling efforts, create new markets for recycled materials and inspire people to consider their relationship with the Earth when choosing—and using—the products they want and need.
Preserve products are made from recycled materials and are all reusable and recyclable. By building on the widespread enthusiasm for recycling—the most common environmental activity among all Americans—Preserve is uniquely positioned to make a real difference in terms of pollution, greenhouse gas emissions, global warming, waste reduction and natural resource preservation.
We believe in the power of partnerships to promote change. The collaborative efforts of companies and individuals to reduce waste and reuse natural resources are our best hope for creating better, more sustainable solutions. As the most powerful force on our planet today, businesses—large and small—have a unique opportunity and an implicit responsibility to work together to create systemic change and lessen our impact on the planet.
