Re-Think It, Inc. was founded by husband and wife team Craig and Amy Shumway with the goal of producing high quality, durable, and sustainable consumer goods. Re-Think It began producing an all-purpose scrubber called the Original Power Puff, featuring a long handle made out of recycled milk jugs. In 2011, Re-Think It unveiled the Re-Play line of infant and toddler dishware. Featuring a wide color pallet, each plate, bowl, cup, and utensil is manufactured out of recycled, FDA approved, food safe plastic.
Today, Re-Think It remains family owned and family-focused company dedicated to providing sustainable and affordable products, while following responsible environmental and social business practices.
Family values and responsibilities are a leading priority at Re-Think It. The company encourages work-life balance and offers employees flexible schedules to support family time and education. Re-Think It's founders believe this balance creates the most productive and rewarding work environment where employees' ideas and input are encouraged and considered in making decisions about the future of the company, both big and small.

About Recycled HDPE Plastic
Our products are made from recycled HDPE, which is a #2 plastic. HDPE basically means milk jugs! It is also BPA-free, Phthalate free, and PVC free. It’s one of the easiest plastics to recycle, and it can be recycled again and again. So drink your milk and toss that jug in the recycling bin!
According to the Healthy Child Health World website, if you are unsure about safely using plastic items, look for recycling codes 2, 4, or 5. Recycling codes 1, 3, and 6 can leach lead, bisphenol A, phthalates, and other stuff under certain circumstances. Recycling code 7 is the “Other” category. Some of these plastics are safer choices, like bioplastics such as PLA, while others can leach chemicals, etc. Read your labels for more information and proper care.
