Every year, the United States produces over 35 million tons of plastic...
...and a huge portion of that is food packaging. Globally, 79% of plastic waste that’s ever been created is sitting in landfills or our environment1. Plus, our recycling infrastructure is struggling to keep up: US plastic recycling rates are stuck at 9%, and we export 0.83 million tons of these recyclables to countries with poor waste management systems2.
Here in Colorado, the situation is just as bad. The state of Colorado has a ban on plastic bans3, making it very difficult to regulate plastic use. At the same time, the plastic recycling rate in Colorado is stuck at 3%4. Meanwhile, researchers recently detected microplastics in our rain and snow, bringing the plastic pollution issue very close to home5. And even if we had great recycling, so much food comes in non-recyclable plastic!

Meet Our Team
Born from a restless dissatisfaction with our current disposable culture, Infinity Goods is spearheaded by two passionate founders who want to eliminate plastic waste from the food industry, starting with groceries.
Ashwin Ramdas, Founder
"I enjoy Nature—so much that I travel far and wide to experience Earth's natural splendor. But almost everywhere I go, I encounter plastic pollution: from oceans, to forests, and everywhere in between. We create so much plastic waste everyday...and a lot of it comes from grocery shopping. That's why I started Infinity Goods: to save you time from grocery shopping, and to make it easy for you to fight back against plastic."
Dani McLean, Co-Founder
"Our planet is in trouble, and this terrifies me. But I’m not alone! My friends and family hear the daily news about whales dying from plastic ingestion, about micro-plastics entering our food, and they all have one thing in common: they want to do something about it, but don’t know how. Infinity Goods makes it possible to clean up our planet by cutting back on plastic—and what better place to do so than in our kitchens, where we see it the most? We may be individuals, but together, we can help turn #zerowaste from a hashtag into the norm."
