For greener online shopping and selling.
Our office manager realized that our office got flooded with plastic rubble, because we order a lot of things online. During Christmastime we had so much plastic laying around, it was embarrassing.
He came up with the idea to use air instead of plastic.
Currently there’s about 8.300.000.000 metric tons of plastic on our planet. Of this, 6.400.000.000 metric tons or 79% is waste and posing a direct threat to our planet. And the problem is getting worse by the day.
By 2020 more than 2 billion people will be using parcel services to send packages around the world. While positive for our economy, the plastic inside those packages is not so benign and will only add to the massive plastic waste that has already permanently affected our biosphere.
If it’s up to us, the plastic waste inside our packages might soon be a thing of the past.
What we propose is to replace all that plastic with one inflatable shell that uses air to protect the contents of packages. Airshipping is not only a lot cheaper but also infinitely more sustainable. Air is a resource that’s quite abundantly available, after all.
Friendship started using Airship® on a small scale. Meanwhile they need your help to get the interest of retailers and shipping companies. Together we can get the world to use Airship® and drastically decrease the use of plastic rubble.
With some help and dedication it might become the next Ocean Cleanup , which also started as a wild idea before it became a full-fledged solution that has received support from all around the globe.
Plastic will be a huge problem for decades to come, but if we act now our children can inherit a green-and-blue planet instead of a plastic one.
