All About Us...

Started in the spring of 2017, Rethinking Plastic has been connecting with individuals in Sarasota County, Florida and the US, researching, learning, and helping to educate those looking for ways they can be more sustainable. While reducing the use of single-plastic, extra packaging and unnecessary waste, our aim is in the area of food. As depicted in our logo, we strive to help individuals and restaurants become BADFive Free!

“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together … all things connect.”

—Chief Seattle

Our Mission

Rethinking Plastic is a group of individuals making strides to support sustainability in current times of convenience.  It is imperative that we find alternatives for single-use plastics in the food industry. Our aim is to research, educate and collaborate. As depicted in our logo, we strive to help individuals and restaurants become

BadFive Free!


Our Vision

We know that plastics have their place in our world and that this substance has unique and valuable properties that can save and change lives. We want their use not to be taken lightly but instead to be thought through from cradle to grave. This awakening is happening everywhere and Rethinking Plastic aims to connect with others in this effort to bring a significant and urgent problem under control.
