Celebrate Plastic Free July with FiveADRIFT and Our New 10-Year Guarantee

Did you know that July is Plastic Free July? It’s a global movement that challenges millions of people to reduce their plastic waste and be part of the solution to plastic pollution. Plastic Free July was founded in 2011 by Rebecca Prince-Ruiz as a grassroots campaign to raise awareness about plastic pollution. Since then, the movement has grown immensely, and in 2021 alone, participants reduced 2.1 million tons of waste1.

Plastic Free July is a great opportunity to rethink our relationship with plastic and make some positive changes in our lives. Whether it’s refusing single-use plastics, choosing reusable alternatives, recycling or composting what we can, or supporting eco-friendly brands, every action counts.

We know that going plastic free is not easy, and it can be overwhelming to try to change everything at once. That’s why we encourage you to start small and focus on one thing at a time. You can also join the Plastic Free July community and get tips, ideas, and inspiration from others who are on the same journey. You can sign up for the challenge and access free resources on the Plastic Free July website2.

At FiveADRIFT, we are proud to support Plastic Free July and celebrate our commitment to sustainability and innovation. We make all natural fiber beach towels that are not only soft, absorbent, and durable, but also eco-friendly and plastic free. Our towels are made from a blend of hemp and organic cotton, which are both natural fibers that have low environmental impacts. Hemp is one of the most sustainable crops in the world, as it requires very little water, land, and pesticides to grow. It also has antibacterial and anti-fungal properties, which make it ideal for beach towels. Organic cotton is also a great choice for beach towels, as it is soft, breathable, and gentle on the skin.

We also work with the best manufacturers in Turkey, who have decades of experience and expertise in making high-quality textiles. They use the most advanced manufacturing techniques to ensure that our towels are well-made, durable, and beautiful. They also follow strict ethical and environmental standards, so you can rest assured that your towels are made with respect for people and the planet.

And to prove our confidence in the quality and longevity of our products, we are now offering a 10-year guarantee on our all natural fiber beach towels! That’s right, you can enjoy our super soft, absorbent, and durable towels for a whole decade, worry-free. Our 10-year guarantee covers any defects in materials or workmanship that may occur during normal use of our towels. If you experience any issues with your towels within 10 years of purchase, simply contact us and we will replace them for free. No questions asked.

We want you to love our towels as much as we do, and we want them to last you for many years of adventures and memories. That’s why we are offering this unprecedented guarantee, as a way of showing our appreciation and commitment to our customers.

We’ve worked really hard to remove plastic from our supply chain at FiveADRIFT. We selected a fulfillment (3PL) company based on the fact that they would use brown paper void fill in our boxes and paper tape. Two months into the partnership they changed to plastic bubble fill would no longer guarantee plastic tape. So we left them for another company that promised to always use recyclable paper in an effort to win our business. This said two things to us: 1) You have to ask for or even sometimes demand environmental changes from partners as part of awarding business to them. 2) Every sustainable focused business is in a constantly changing ecosystem and one has to stay vigilant and re-evaluate partners, processes and products continually. If we can improve even just 1% each month, that compounds over an entire year.
