We help businesses innovate out of single-use and engage their customers around why it matters, and why it’s better.
Nationwide surveys show two thirds of Americans are "very concerned" about plastic in the environment and businesses are reacting to this news by scrambling to find solutions. But the problem is there's a lot of confusion as to what's actually going to work.
That’s where UPSTREAM comes in. We help businesses understand the costs of single-use and the benefits of reuse. And we help venues, restaurant chains, and large and small businesses transform their operations. We also host innovation labs and are developing an online marketplace to help create the conditions for reuse businesses to scale and thrive. Ready to make the switch from single use to reuse? We're here to help.
