About Us

Reusable Planet icon

Hey there! Thanks for visiting.

Here at REUSABLE PLANET, we’re all about… well… reusable stuff!

But we’re more than that! We make it easy for you and your family to change their everyday lifestyle habits for a better, more sustainable planet.

REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE, RETHINK.

From supplying products that reduce the need for single-use plastics and eco alternatives to other every day products, to sharing great ideas for reducing your footprint, sourcing abundant articles to fill you with information and researching blog articles to help enlighten, inform and educate.

We're based in South East Queensland, Australia, on the sunny Gold Coast on the traditional land of the Yugambeh People.

 

 

Rachel, prolific reuser and creator of Reusable Planet

Rachel is a corporate hippy from way back and is the Creator of REUSABLE PLANET. She was banning brands and recycling way before it was cool. She has spent her life bugging and pestering those around her at home and work and play to do the same.

Before she personally banned McDonald’s back in the 90s (she's old), she used to make them wrap her McFeast in cheeseburger paper, when it traditionally came in polystyrene.

Before Virgin Airlines recycled their water bottles, she would take hers off the plane and recycle it herself, rather than have it binned… After making the point to the hosties.

She accepts personal responsibility for both these corporates' change in those behaviours!

Okay, well not really. But it is only when enough consumers take actions like this that corporate behaviours do change for the better. And all these small changes add up to a big difference. Just look at the pending straw ban at McDonald's Australia!

Concerned with the growing plastic pollution problem and its affects on the planet and people, Rachel created Reusable Planet in 2018 with the goal of making it easy for families to choose a more sustainable option and leave a lighter footprint on the world.

Rachel is also a big advocate for #WomenSupportingWomen and offers a growing list of female-lead Aussie brands in the eco store. You can filter search our products for both AUSSIE OWNED & AUSSIE MADE.

So don’t say you, just one person, can’t make a difference. Because you can!

And that’s what REUSABLE PLANET is all about.

Come and make a small difference with us.

Creator of Reusable Planet, Rachel, personally tests and trials every product to ensure it does the job it says it does! If you'd like to become a product tester, drop us a line at hello @ reusableplanet dot com dot au and let us know!

 

 

Our Packaging:

We keep our parcel packaging and filler as reusable, recyclable (or recycled / repurposed) and compostable as possible.

You may even find your parcel in a random box which is clean and perfect for reusing.

When we do use some plastic to protect products in transit, it’s also reused from our suppliers.

We encourage all our customers to recycle their soft plastics in the nearest REDcycle bin, found at most major supermarkets. You can find out more at www.redcycle.net.au.

We send our packages via Australia Post's carbon neutral tracking service.
