Your Impact

1 Million People

More than one million people have switched to Pela, which equates to 760,000 pounds of waste that was prevented from entering the waste stream. It’s a great start and going forward, we hope to create bigger impact with the support of our community.

Our Mission

10 Billion Pounds of Waste

Our goal is to remove 10 billion pounds of waste from the waste stream by 2028. It's ambitious but with the support we've been getting from our community, and the help and awareness being built by our partners, this goal is a real possibility. We dream of a waste free future and part of that requires us turning off the tap on plastic and food waste entirely.

Our Impact

While the products we design are impactful on their own, we believe good business and doing good are the same thing. We have donated over $875,000 to help non-profit/for purpose organizations leave the planet better than how we found it. Here’s a little summary of the impact our community has had so far.
