Our Story & Mission
Help us keep 1 BILLION pounds of waste from ever being made.
Here at Pela we have a big, hairy audacious goal. We want to create a waste-free future.
We believe that the technology exists to make our BHAG a reality, it just takes the right company with the right community to make these products the new normal.
This is why we are developing products made of environmentally sensible materials. To educate and inspire the global community of people who are committed to making a positive impact on our planet. We imagine a world where waste is optional.
Put simply, we believe in better. Everyday Products Without Everyday Waste™
This all started with Jeremy Lang, our founder. He saw firsthand the damage plastic was doing to our oceans while on a family vacation in Hawaii in 2008. Jeremy had the courage to spend years experimenting with new materials to try and find an alternative to plastic that could be used in everyday products. We are working on helping humans rethink waste, and creating a circular economy around it.
