Antiques: An Old Way to Be Green

There are so many ways to think about being environmentally conscious. In fact, we like to think of antiquing as one of the nicest ways of recycling. Incorporating antiques into your home decor is a beautiful way to love your home and your earth. We love it when style and the environment can go hand in hand.

That's why we were so happy to give each and every Design Cincinnati attendee a sample of Plaine Products shampoo in your swag bags. Plaine Products is the very first body products company dedicated to the elimination of single use plastics. All Plaine Products come in stainless steel containers that can be sent back to the manufacturer and refilled again and again. You may think that one tiny, little plastic shampoo bottle won't make a difference, but did you know that less than 10% of plastics are actually reclaimed and recycled? The rest go straight to the landfill. Just think about how many products in plastic bottles that you use during the day--it's actually quite staggering.


We're so proud to be working with Plaine Products. The company's founders are dedicated, intelligent--and they are from Cincinnati, too. We hope you love their products and we hope you'll sign up for their subscription service once they launch--you can follow their progress on social media. Plaine Products will be making a donation to Design Cincinnati for every attendee who agrees to try their shampoo and body wash subscription service. So you'll be helping Mother Earth, and you'll be helping our fundraising efforts on behalf of Cincinnati Children's. Two admirable causes with one sustainable bottle.
