Planet Green Sleeves
We built Planet Green Sleeves around the simple concept of creating a brandable product that helps cut down on waste. In this case, hot or cold beverages sleeves.
Every cup of coffee that you get at your local coffee shop comes with one of these little sleeves. It doesn’t look like much, but the average person drinks 250 cups of coffee like this per year.
With 50 billion disposable coffee cups thrown away annually, the cardboard sleeves alone generate 45 million pounds of landfill waste. That’s enough sleeves to circle the Earth 18 times!
Out of a simple design improvement a product is born, in this case, the next evolution of beverage sleeves. To date, coffee sellers supply a disposable one time use cardboard sleeve as a courtesy for the customer. On each is a printed company logo for branding purposes and/or other advertisements. Unfortunately, this creates tons of extra waste in the world’s landfills.
Our business model does not relegate us to neighborhood sales; we wish to reach all parts of the world. We’re aiming to become an award-winning product at Coffee Fest’s, Trade Shows and Product Conventions in the global beverage industry! Whether its glass, paper or plastic you can insulate your beverage with our Eco-Friendly Sleeves.
With this innovation, this will help reduce and eliminate the daily waste of the 50 Billion cardboard sleeves and cups disposed of annually around the world.
How We Began!
I do have a great story to tell, I could have written a book for all the adventures and the inevitable misadventures encountered along the way. The people I’ve met along this journey have been far and wide across the entire spectrum of both good and bad, there were so many companies visited, lots of scoffs, rolled eyes, yeah rights, looks of whatever, many from my closest circles but that only drove me that much harder to persevere.
I’ve literally taken this journey Coast to Coast where so many have pointed me in the direction of the next step and those who saw me as perhaps naïve, not taken serious, but in the end the dream is here, to the left is a slideshow, it is just a small sampling of some of my earliest epic fails of the first DIY prototypes to destinations that played a part in bringing this closer to the goal. You’ll have to venture over to the “Story” section on the our project page for the details. Enjoy the read.
A Product Demonstration Video
It’s been a long time coming but it is finally here. Many substrates had to be tested in both flexibility, durability, printability and thermal effectiveness all while making every effort to bring this to market at the lowest price point possible.
There were so many miles traveled and so many trials with all the testing that went into this and in all the companies visited along the way, but we finally found the perfect solution to all that we were seeking to accomplish. See for yourself.
