ABOUT US >

Planet First Foundation is an environmental nonprofit  charity that is committed to reducing reliance on single-use plastics in increasing recycling to reduce our footprint.

Founded in the United States in 2019 by Samuel Melnick, Planet First Foundation is focused on becoming one of the most effective organizations targeting a reduction of the excess creation of non-recyclable waste.  Scientists have long recognized that plastics biodegrade slowly, if at all, and pose multiple threats to wildlife on land and in oceans through entanglement and consumption.  More recent reports highlight dangers posed by absorption of toxic chemicals in the water and by plastic odors that mimic some species’ natural food.

 

Our task is not an easy one ... Between 1989 and 1994 the beverage industry spent $14 million to defeat the National Bottle Bill.  But plastic ends up buried underneath tons of trash.  Its harmful toxic chemicals  leach into the ground and into groundwater potentially contaminating drinking water supplies, rivers, streams, and eventually the ocean.
