What Makes It "Green"
Who is Planet Wise Inc.
Planet Wise Inc. is a privately owned family corporation; founded by Nicki Maynard and later joined by husband Jesse. As a husband and wife team, they are working together to ensure the highest quality products while following responsible environmental and social business practices.
How Does Planet Wise Inc Help the Environment?
To reduce their environmental impact, all products have been thoroughly researched and are all PVC-free and lead-free (a surprising fact is that many zippers have been painted using paint that contains lead). All the products they have developed are reusable and have been designed to replace disposable items which help to reduce waste that ends up in the landfills. Planet Wise Wet Bags have been designed to be useful for every age - from young children in diapers to the mature adult -and for transporting shoes, cosmetics, swimwear, or gym wear. Planet Wise Snack Bags, their newest addition, are made with environmentally friendly FDA food safe material. Also, their packaging is printed on recycled/recyclable paper using soy-based ink.
How Is Planet Wise Inc Socially Conscious?
Community and family has always been a leading value for Planet Wise Inc. Multi-generations are employed as well as fellow neighbors. Employees are given the opportunity for flexible schedules allowing them to work around family time and school schedules. To further promote family values, employees are welcome to bring their young children to work with them.
How Does Planet Wise Inc. Do It?
During development they carefully researched raw materials and chose as many USA-made materials as possible. While abiding by this high standard of quality, they also continually strive to keep the price affordable for all families. All products are manufactured in a locally women-owned facility helping to support the local economy and reduce their environmental impact. All business decisions, either big or small, are evaluated with our planet's health and social harmony in mind.
