Our journey

the sustainables is the solution to reduce single use plastic in your everyday life.

The story of the sustainables started in the beginning of 2019, when founders Esther and Emiliano on a holiday to Cuba experienced how plastic waste seriously disturbs our planet. In developing countries there is little to no attention to single use plastic consumption, there is no culture about it, like in Europe decades ago. After seeing the huge amount of plastic waste left in the streets, forests and beaches, the founders decided it was time to take action and find a way to reduce single use plastic while outdoor, if travelling, at the park or at work. We believe that, to make a change, we should take on every opportunity that is reached to us. Small or large. For us and for future generations.

“We don’t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly. We need millions of people doing it imperfectly.”
