Ripplfect is more than a product or service一 it’s a movement. Ripplfect originates from the term, “ripple effect,” or the continuing and spreading results of an event or action. As humans, it is important for us to understand that we are a part of something larger than ourselves. Individually and collectively, we can make a difference.
Rippl’s mission is to bring transparency to the positive impact an individual can have by slightly altering their everyday choices.
the rippl story
If you were unaware that bringing your own cup to coffee shops was a possibility, you are not alone. In fact, over 40 percent of people don’t realize it is an option. How can we expect consumers to make environmentally conscious decisions when they aren’t aware of their options or the consequences associated?
Even when you think you’re doing the right thing by throwing your cup into the bin marked, “recycling,” it is important to know a majority of those cups don't end up recycled. Instead, they take a thousand years to "break down" into smaller toxic bits of plastic. Those toxic chemicals are then ingested by animals, washed up on shorelines and placed on our dinner plates. This movement isn’t just about joining it, it’s about educating others on why it is important.
We gravitate towards disposables because of our fast-paced lifestyle. We live in a world where convenience is prioritized and consequences are overlooked. Through our product and mobile app, we have equipped you with the product and technology that aligns your values with your choices.
It takes 21 days to break a habit. Rippl is going to be with you every step of the way. With push notifications that remind you to bring your cup in the morning and rewards you for when you do, it will be no time before single-use cups are a distant memory. Together, we can disrupt the throwaway culture.
