Who We Are
Located in Santa Cruz, CA and surrounded by nature at its best, WeUse was born from a determination to help reverse the effects of climate change, and support others who want alternatives to single-use. The team looked at human history and was reminded of the fact that humans have been doing the reusable thing since the dawn of civilization, it has served us and our planet well, so let’s keep it going!
We created the first working RaaS model back in 2016 for shipping packaging and have since applied the full-service model to a variety of other single-use to reusable packaging and products.
