Bringing Sustainability to the World's Sports

At PLAPOMS, we are driven by our passion for creating biodegradable products that make a positive impact on the environment. Our journey began during our time as students at Penn State University, where we experienced firsthand the vibrant energy of football games and the overwhelming waste generated by traditional plastic pom-poms. Witnessing this wastefulness ignited a deep sense of responsibility within us to find a sustainable alternative. Inspired by our shared commitment to environmental preservation, we embarked on a mission to revolutionize fan accessories, starting with pom-poms.

Our team at PLAPOMS firmly believes that sustainable choices should not come at the expense of style or functionality. We recognized the urgent need to address plastic waste in the sports industry and envisioned a solution that combines team spirit with eco-consciousness. This led us to develop PLA-based pom-poms, harnessing the power of biodegradable Polylactic Acid derived from renewable resources. Our dedication to sustainability is ingrained in every aspect of our business, from materials sourcing to manufacturing processes. By offering PLA pom-poms, we are proud to provide fans with a guilt-free way to show their support for their favorite teams. 

 

Driven by our experiences at Penn State University, we are deeply committed to raising awareness about the environmental impact of traditional plastic pom-poms. Our journey has been fueled by the desire to create change and inspire others to embrace sustainable alternatives. We understand that small actions can have a significant impact, and through our biodegradable pom-poms, we aim to encourage a shift towards a greener future in the sports community and beyond. With each wave of a PLA pom-pom, fans can actively participate in reducing plastic waste and promoting environmental stewardship. 

Join us on this journey to revolutionize the fan experience and make a difference with PLAPOMS and our eco-friendly pom-poms.
