Reusing Your Plastic At Ban SUP Refill: My Experience

This weekend, I was invited to an event at Ban SUP Refill in Pasadena, California where people gathered to celebrate the one year anniversary of the store. Ban SUP Refill is a store where they offer sustainable and affordable products that helps shoppers reduce plastic waste. Their website states:

“Our passion for reducing and eliminating plastic waste has created the vision for this store and each of the products”

They sell goods such as soaps, organic foods, and reusable bottles. From selling these items, their company has eliminated over 1.1 million total plastics that could have been hurting our ocean and marine life.

One thing that I liked about their products is their design and material. One in particular, was their Bamboo Insulated mugs. These reusable plastic alternatives are unique and give them a one of a kind feeling. Unlike most reusable plastic alternative products, this one has a beautiful design of a bee on the front. You can check it out from their website here:

This was my first time going to an event like this. I was very happy to experience it and gained a lot from the event . Being a high-schooler and the youngest person there, I was excited to show that the youth cares about these issues and want to make a difference. I look forward to continuing with these events and doing everything I can to impact our oceans and make them a cleaner and safer place.

Please be sure to check out their website at and look around at their selection of goods to stop more plastic from entering our ocean.
