Are these stickers sustainable?
Cancel Plastic stickers are made from 100% paper. We're excited to be working with one of the most environmentally friendly printing companies in the USA. They are 15x less wasteful than other printers, use vegetable-based inks, and are 100% powered by wind energy.
How are you able to remove plastic from the ocean?
We started Cancel Plastic to not just help people use less plastic, but to also help clean up the plastic mess in the oceans. Depending on which sticker pack is purchased, we remove anywhere from 1-30 lbs. of Ocean Bound Plastic. We are proud to be working with ECSSA located in Port-Au-Prince, Haiti. ECSSA actively employs a network of over 9,000 collectors over the entire country of Haiti. ECSSA's work enables collectors to increase their income which allows them to send their kids to school, feed their children, and have hope for a better life – all while cleaning the environment.
What is Ocean Bound Plastic?
Ocean Bound Plastic is mismanaged plastic waste that is in river ways, streets, beaches, or the ocean. When the seasonal rains arrive in Haiti, this plastic is primarily flushed out into the ocean.
ECSSA has directly removed over 60,000,000 lbs of plastic since its founding in 2010.
There are so many companies running scams online these days. How do I know that you're legit?
This is a question we believe EVERY company should be asked. We are one of the APPROVED partners of ECSSA, so you can rest assured that your purchases are truly going towards supporting their work.
Packaging / Shipping
What packaging is used to ship my order?
